ERUA’s first field of action is about building a flexible and participatory alliance, inviting all members of the universities’ communities to contribute to its development.
The global coordination team of the project is thus committed to:
ERUA also intends to conceive a common quality standards system to ensure the accountability, reproducibility, sustainability, quality of activities and their conformity with ethical, gender- and inclusion-related requirements. The Alliance will thus ensure the quality, alignment and consistency of all its educational initiatives while providing feedback on pedagogical practices among partners.

The purpose of this work package is to ensure that European reform universities remain venues of experimentation. We aim to question what universities are and to re-imagine what they could be. We will promote experimentation in teaching, learning, and research within the Alliance. We will gather information about what is already happening, support and share new experiments, and offer recommendations for how we can move forward into the future.

As Reform universities, we are dedicated to offer the most innovative learning offer to all our ERUA students.
ERUA’s third field of action is focused on building a new ecosystem within the alliance by combining our respective teaching offer and the successful experiments conducted by the ERUA’s working group on “Re-imagining Higher Education and Research ”. All our activities are developed through an innovative integrated framework thanks to the active participation of all the ERUA team from all member universities.
Re-imagining learning pathways engages us to:
Develop a common conceptual and digital approach to education and research
We foster experience-based learning through civic engagement, critical thinking and interdisciplinarity. Our activities involve all fields of study and all levels of study (Bachelor, Master and Doctoral levels).
Our main objective is to make our learning offer the most accessible to all our ERUA students. Therefore, we are engaged in fostering inclusion and overcoming the obstacles for physical mobility (due to socio-economic background, lack of time, job obligations, financial reasons, etc.) through implementing for instance more short term mobilities and blended learning.
ERUA is working hand-in-hand with its academic community to bring the best solutions to our future generations of European citizens.
ERUA will offer a wide range of learning opportunities.

The general objective of this field of action is to create a strong community, spanning our campuses, based on common values, knowledge, languages and interests, between and among students, teachers, researchers and non-academic staff. We consider community-building and the creation of a collective feeling of belonging among students and staff a key objective for the construction of our European University. As a result, this field of action takes on a central role within the project: by developing a shared identity of ERUA students and staff and by yielding sustainable impact, it shoulders one of the main tasks in the implementation of our consortium and reinforces the processes that contribute to developing a shared European identity among all the members of the Alliance.
We believe that the community building should put the main attention on staff and professional development – always including academic and non-academic staff. This is why we place specific emphasis on staff, since this is where identity and the feeling of belonging are fostered in a durable fashion.
The main activities are located in the field of staff capacity building, language policy, mobility and diversity. More precisely, we are focusing on four specific targets:
Dr. Eva Dade: ERUA@uni-konstanz.de
3 Flagships to connect and engage the 6 campuses in UAegean, the partners of ERUA and the ERUA Alliance with the outside word (stakeholders, partnerships, networks, etc).
Develop and Adopt Common Digital tools for connectivity (students, campuses, and outside word), using “ready to use” infrastructures, and open source ways for platforms and applications. Under the 1st Flagship are been connected all the digital activities for Digital Mobility, Creative Digital Partnerships and Sustained engagements with Regions and Societies.
2nd Flagship: “Aeiforia in Erua”
Goal: Enable Sustainable Synergies between ERUA partners, Local Societies and Regions for joint efforts to achieve greater impact and efficiency, designing models based on Quintuple Helix (natural environments of society and the economy as drivers for knowledge production and innovation). Under the 2nd Flagship are been connected all the sustained attention activities, for Sustainable Alliance and Sustained engagements with Regions and Societies.
“Aeifora” (Sustainable) Outcomes:
3rd Flagship: “Bauhaus in Erua”
Goal: Experience the New European Bauhaus movement, “the twin challenge of a green and digital transformation”, as a bridge between the world of science & technology & the world of art & culture, with a new Green Deal aesthetic, combining design & digital technologies (1st Flagship: “Digital Reform in Erua”) with sustainability (2nd Flagship: “Aeiforia in Erua” )

This field of action aims to promote ERUA and its activities and results to relevant stakeholder communities thanks to a strong online presence as well as a set of powerful communication tools tailored to the diverse target groups.
These activities also address actions meant to ensure that all project-related publications comply with the principles of open science, open access and open data and to define how we will disseminate our project results beyond the Alliance, acting as a role model.
