A second time, ERUA has obtained the support of the European Commission to advance with ERUA2, our ambitious and deeply engaging four-year initiative funded by the Erasmus+ Programme’s European Universities Initiative. With a grant of €12.8M, ERUA will be able to take significant strides towards its goal of establishing a fully integrated European University of the Future.
Expanding on the accomplishments of the alliance’s flagship projects, ERUA1 and Re:ERUA, our member universities and associated partners will adopt a comprehensive approach through ERUA2, ensuring the seamless integration of education, research, innovation and societal engagement within the alliance, across Europe and even beyond.
Leveraging the distinctive strengths of the five newest partners in the alliance – Uniwersytet SWPS (Poland), European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) (Germany), Università di Macerata (Italy), Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria – (Spain) and Mykolo Romerio Universitetas – (Lithuania) – ERUA will ensure their active participation to maximize the project’s impact. Additionally, the dedication of ERUA’s 36 associated partners underscores the alliance’s commitment to enhancing the global competitiveness of the European Higher Education and Research Areas and achieving a genuinely transcontinental European Campus.
“The ERUA2 project is a testament to the remarkable collaboration, not only among our 8 esteemed institutions and our vibrant community of students, scholars, and professionals, but also with our truly engaged 36 associated partners across Europe and beyond. Together, we are eagerly embarking on the next phase of creating a truly inclusive, reformist, forward-thinking and “at the edge” #EuropeanUniversity. A University that empowers #EuropeanCitizens with the skills they need to tackle the complex challenges, for now and for the future. A University that creates a powerful academic hub for critical and innovative contribution to a free, equitable and democratic Europe around a core of social sciences and humanities and their interfaces.”
