The 4EU+ European University Alliance has one vision: to create a new quality of cooperation in teaching, education, research and administration. The cooperation is based on a common understanding of the idea of the European university that builds on academic freedom and autonomy and ensures fair access and participation in education.
To build this new kind of integrated European university system, the 4EU+ Alliance will focus on three challenges:
Boost Meaningful Mobility – Better integrating our curricula and making mobility seamless for students in terms of education and employment prospects, while accommodating diverse needs and preferences.
Increase inclusiveness and balance at a European level - Redressing inequalities in university capabilities to attract funding, gain international visibility and fully develop their potential in education, research, innovation and employment opportunities.
Develop a common challenge-based framework for education – Designing flexible learning paths and ensuring graduates have 21st-century skills that combine research-based education, diverse language skills and a strong global and European outlook.
The Rectors of six partner universities—Charles, Heidelberg and Sorbonne Universities, and the Universities of Copenhagen, Milan and Warsaw—have come together to establish a shared, seamless infrastructure, which will bring together professors, researchers, students and staff from six institutions.
