Wrocław Tech hosted the Unite! Steering Committee on 6-7 September
This meeting will be the first time that all Unite! partner universities visit our Polish new partner
Wrocław University of Science and Technology (Wroclaw Tech), which together with the Graz University of Technology (TU Graz) have recently joined the Unite! alliance, will host the next meeting of representatives of all Unite! Steering Committee. This body of the alliance integrates the so-called Key Liaison Officers (KLO) along with their deputies, and it is responsible for the coordination and continuous development of the alliance, as well as for cooperation between the partner universities, comprising the representatives from all partners. 

This meeting will also help to finalise the process of fully integrating our new member universities into our alliance (The University of Technology in Graz and Wrocław University of Science and Technology), as well as to start our work on the next phase of Unite!, for which Unite! received funding from the European Commission in July this year.” – says Andreas Winkler, Secretary General of the Unite!

Professor Arkadiusz Wojs, the President of Wroclaw Tech, said he was "very pleased that September’s Unite! Steering Committee is taking place in Wrocław, as it’s an excellent opportunity to introduce Wrocław University of Science and Technology to all the partners, now that the process of connecting our university to the alliance is coming to an end"

In November this year it is planned that both Graz University of Technology and Wrocław University of Science and Technology will become full members of the alliance and thus fully involved in the development of the European University concept promoted by Unite! "It will be then that the new university alliance development project funded by the European Commission with a total budget of more than 14.5 million euros will be launched" explains Arkadiusz Wojs. 

In addition to the above topics, the participants will discuss current issues related to the building of individual spheres of integration, such as the virtual campus, internal communication within the alliance, and the development of coherent foundations of curricula.
