What is the European Universities Initiative?
The European Universities Initiative is one of the flagship programmes of the European Union to build a European Education Area, co-developed by higher education institutions, student organisations, Member States and the European Commission.
European Universities are transnational alliances that will become the universities of the future, promoting European values and identity, and revolutionising the quality and competitiveness of European Higher Education. To achieve this, the Commission is testing different cooperation models for European Universities with two calls for proposals launched in 2019 and 2020 under the Erasmus+ programme. Click to find out more about the results of the pilot calls launched in 2019 and 2020.
