New 14 projects for European Universities alliances will boost cooperation with Ukraine in higher education under EU’s Erasmus+ Programme

The Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture of European Commission has selected 14 new European Universities alliances under the 2024 Erasmus+ European Universities call. This brings the total to 64, delivering on the goal of the European strategy for universities to set up at least 60 alliances by mid-2024.

The 64 alliances bring together almost 2,200 associated partners from non-governmental organisations, enterprises, cities, local and regional authorities and other higher education institutions from Bologna Process countries, including almost 40 higher education institutions from Ukraine.

Fourteen new projects involving 130 higher education institutions from all over the world together with Ukrainian partners will have support to build their European Universities alliance receiving up to €14.4 million each for 4 years to start their activities this autumn.

The European Universities alliances aim to improve the international competitiveness of higher education institutions in Europe and to promote European values and identity by fostering long-term structural, strategic, and sustainable cooperation between higher education institutions.

Selected 14 projects will put in place a long-term joint strategy for education at the service of society, with links to research and innovation where possible; build European inter-university campuses for students and staff members to study and work in different European countries, different languages, and across sectors and academic disciplines; set up European knowledge-creating teams with their innovation ecosystem to help tackle current and future societal challenges.

Over time, European Universities alliances will connect more and more faculties, departments, staff and students, offering more innovative pedagogies based on challenge-based and transdisciplinary approaches, implementing more joint programmes, being even more inclusive and engaging more with their communities.
