50 European Universities to cooperate across borders and disciplines
30 European Universities alliances have been selected under the 2023 Erasmus+ call further supporting the rollout of the European Universities initiative.
Together with the 20 alliances selected in 2022, we now have a total of 50 European Universities alliances, involving more than 430 higher education institutions. This means we are on track to reach the goal of the European strategy for universities to expand to 60 European Universities with more than 500 higher education institutions by mid-2024.
On 30 September 2022, the European Commission opened a new Erasmus+ European Universities call to further support the implementation of the European Universities initiative.
Today, the Commission announced the successful applicants to this call.
With a record budget of €402.2 million under the 2021-2027 Erasmus+ programme, existing European Universities alliances will continue to receive support to consolidate and expand their cooperation with more than 50 additional higher education institutions. In addition, several new alliances will be able to start their cooperation.
