Unite!'s projects

Unite! is the alliance of the seven technological universities created to contribute to the European Universities Initiatives proposed by European Commission, and financed by the Erasmus Plus and H2020 programmes.

The European Commission proposed the European Universities Initiative in 2019 to push towards establishing a European Education Area by 2025. The European Universities are transnational alliances of higher education institutions from across the EU that share a long-term strategy and promote European values and identity. The initiative is designed to significantly strengthen mobility of students and staff, and foster the quality, inclusiveness and competitiveness of European higher education.

Responding to a call in 2019 under the Erasmus+ Framework Programme, the first 17 alliances were selected for a pilot phase of 3 years to build the foundations of the future European Universities.

In order to boost the Research and Innovation dimension of the European Universities towards a European Research Area,  Unite! together with another 23 more alliances was part of the “Science with and for Society” 2nd call in 2020, as well as additional funding by the EU under the Horizon 2020 programme.

Below you can see how the alliance has organised itself in order to achieve the different goals of each programme:
