European university alliances, assets for the European research and higher education areas

The European university alliances are at the crossroads of higher education, research excellence and European cooperation. Laureats of the call for projects in 2019, EU-CONEXUS and EPICUR will be used as examples to demonstrate the contribution of European university alliances to:

  • the convergence of the European Research Area and the European Higher Education Area
  • the strengthening of collaboration and mobility between different areas of the Union.

This event will also address the positive impact of European university alliances at the local level. The seminar is organised by the University of Strasbourg, in partnership with the European Science Foundation and EuroScience.
