4EU+ Student Night
Organised by students of Heidelberg University, the 4EU+ Student Night will be held on 10th May from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.. It will take place on-site in Heidelberg in lecture hall 4a in the New University and will also be live streamed to the 4EU+ member universities.
The key objective of the 4EU+ Student Night is to inform students and doctoral candidates about the educational activities offered within the four interdisciplinary Flagships of the Alliance and accompanying funding opportunities. Members of the 4EU+ Student Executive Committee, responsible for representing students and doctoral candidates within 4EU+, will share their experiences on being involved in the Alliance and answer questions from participants.
The event takes place in the context of the DAAD-initiated “European Universities Week”.
Call for papers “Migration within the EU Context seen through a multi-disciplinary and plurilinguistic view”
Within the scope of the 4EU+ consortium, Charles University (Czech Republic), the University of Milan (Italy) and Sorbonne University (France) have launched a call of proposals for early career scholars (PhD students, qualified undergraduate students), with a scientific expertise in the fields of Public, Constitutional, European, International or Comparative Law and/or Linguistics. The conference will take place on 11th– 12th September 2023and it will be hosted in person by the Faculty of Law (Charles University in Prague). This conference will alternate presentations from participants as well as a number of seminars held by keynote speakers from the 4EU+ Universities.
The purpose of the conference is to analyse and deepen, also from a comparative perspective, the way in which, in the 21st century, language and legislations in the migration perspective have become almost indivisible, as one influences the other on a rather deep level.

Open consultation hour for academics from the 4EU+ Alliance universities
With the aim of providing continuous advice on current issues and concepts in higher education didactics, and also to promote interdisciplinary exchange between lecturers in this field, the Teaching and Learning Department at the heiSKILLS Competencies and Language Centre of Heidelberg University is offering a regular online consultation hour open to teaching staff from all 4EU+ universities.

#GrowingTogether: new calls for academics from the 4EU+ Alliance universities
On 17th March, the 4EU+ Alliance announced two calls for academics from member universities.
The SEED4EU+ call offers the academic community of 4EU+ universities the opportunity to fund out-of-the-box initiatives that do not necessarily fit into customary calls for project proposals, thus allowing them to broaden their creative horizons;
- 4EU+ Visiting Professorships is a pilot programme seeks to enhance the knowledge and skills of academic staff at the 7 member universities of the Alliance, to support new and enrich existing collaborations and to lead to the creation of novel expertise within 4EU+. It intends to enlarge the community of researchers and academics that are actively involved in 4EU+ activities.
Application deadline for both: 1st June.
Info session on the SEED4EU+ and Visiting Profesorships calls (Wednesday, 26 April, 10:30-12:00 CET)
With the growth being the leitmotif of the two calls, the Alliance encourages proposals that will widen the 4EU+ community, foster mutual competence development and meaningful mobility between 4EU+ member universities, and contribute to the long-term sustainability of 4EU+ collaboration.
This commitment to growth is also reflected in the financial engagement of the Alliance: the funding of the SEED4EU+ initiative comes directly from the budgets of 4EU+ member universities, while the Visiting Professorships programme is funded from the budget of the 4EU+ European University Alliance Association.
The session will be held in English and is open to academics, researchers and doctoral candidates of the seven 4EU+ member universities: Charles University, Heidelberg University, Sorbonne University, University of Copenhagen, University of Geneva, University of Milan and the University of Warsaw.
If you would like to participate in the info session, please fill in the registration form under this link by Monday, 24 April, end of the day.
A link to the info session will be sent to the registered participants the day before the event and in the morning of the event.
For any questions about the info session or the funding calls, please contact your the UW 4EU+ office: 4euplus(at)uw.edu.pl.
MERGEDgate is an interdisciplinary workshop on global environment and development that will take place in Chiavenna, Italy, on 27 – 30 June 2023.

As they are held online, you can do it from practically anywhere. All you need to do is to secure your spot by filling in the registration form for each seminar you are interested in.
Free Online 4EU+ Course: Data Literacy
“Data Literacy – What is it and Why Does it Matter?” is the title of an open online course.
It will cover issues from three perspectives: data in personal life, data in society, and data in knowledge production. The aim is threefold:
- to expand the skills and abilities to identify, understand, and interpret the many roles of digital technologies in daily life;
- to enable the participants to discern when data-driven technologies add value to people’s lives, and when they exploit human vulnerabilities or deplete the commons;
- to cultivate a deeper understanding of how data-driven technologies are shaping knowledge production and how they may be realigned with real human needs and values.
The course is funded by Erasmus+ and developed by the 4EU+ University Alliance including Charles University (Univerzita Karlova), Sorbonne Unviersity (Sorbonne Université), University of Copenhagen (Københavns Universitet), University of Milan (Università degli studi di Milano), and University of Warsaw (Uniwersytet Warszawski).
European Citizenship – Free online 4EU+ course
This course examines the development, the scope and the challenges of European Citizenship.
The course is developed by the 4EU+ University Alliance (Univerzita Karlova, Universität Heidelberg, Sorbonne Université, Københavns Universitet, Università degli studi di Milano, Uniwersytet Warszawski). The creation of the course was supported by the Erasmus+ Programme.
The course is free and open to everyone interested. It is structured in three modules, consisting of video lectures, readings, discussion fora, quizzes and/or assignments. The estimated learner workload is 2–3 hours per week in three weeks.
