The 4EU+ European University Alliance brings together six comprehensive, research-intensive, public universities from four regions of Europe to strengthen the European vision of deepened cooperation and mutual enrichment by developing a new quality of cooperation in teaching, education, research and administration, leading to the creation of a truly integrated European University System.
Flagship 1) Health and demographic change in an urban environment
Changing environments and demographics have direct impact on the health of our citizens. To take on the interconnected issues of an ageing population, urban density and its environmental impacts and healthcare demands, this flagship focuses on the development of new multidisciplinary approaches to research techniques, teaching and learning methods.
Flagship 2) Europe in a changing world: Understanding and engaging societies, economies, cultures and languages
There is a pressing need to address crucial questions such as what challenges lie ahead for a united Europe, which areas could be sources of potential European division and which areas can contribute to stronger European unity across the board.
Flagship 3) Transforming science and society: Advancing information, computation and communication
The proposed flagship is a novel combination of approaches to attack questions about big data and computational sciences. Researchers from the network bring expertise and tools developed in their independent research programs to bear on this problem. We have formed a unique interdisciplinary team of researchers from our network with the computational expertise.
Flagship 4) Biodiversity and sustainable development
An ever-increasing demand on resources and serious disruptions from climate change are topics that must be efficiently addressed by contemporary science, and which must be based on deep understanding of the underlying processes and principles. Adequate education of future specialists in the field must be based on high-quality research, while long-term maintenance of the research community cannot exist without top quality education of new generations of researchers.
Academic Partnership for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (API)
Project sponsored by the Polish National for Academic Exchange NAWA which aims to develop durable solutions in the area of scientific cooperation.
Charles University Minigrants 2021
In 2021, Charles University selects 20 joint 4EU+ projects to receive seed funding for projects focused primarily on research. Each project team comprises a representative from Charles University and members from at least two other 4EU+ universities. Project themes fall under one of the 4EU+ Flagships; Flagship 2 has the greatest representation this year (9 projects supported). The project duration is one year.
The Arqus European University Alliance brings together the universities of Bergen, Granada, Graz, Leipzig, Lyon, Padua and Vilnius, seven longstanding comprehensive research universities with deep regional engagement in medium-sized cities. Arqus is a multilateral alliance of internationalized institutions who share academic, scientific and cultural objectives, a common vision of the role of higher education and research and mutual fields of interest. The Alliance’s name stems from the Latin term arcus/arquus, for arch, representing the strong foundations the consortium is laying for building bridges toward a shared future, to respond to the grand global societal challenges and to advance towards deeper European integration.
