„University European” is a call for proposals announced for the first time by European Commission in 2019. The initiative opened the way for international and inter-university partnerships, which are designed to become European universities of the future. Not only does such action plan result in common development strategy and jointly formed multilingual campus, but also in innovative education methods based on digital solutions, as well as in a stronger cooperation with the social and economic environment, as in the case of our Transform4Europe alliance.

The call for proposals is funded under ERASMUS+ programme, and the subsequent initiatives, implemented within the framework of particular university consortia, are co-financed under other EU programmes, such as e.g. Horizon 2020.

The budget for executing the objectives of all 41 European universities amounted to EUR 287 million, whereby every alliance could receive funding up to EUR 5 million under ERASMUS+ and EUR 2 million under Horizon 2020, to be used during three years of the project implementation.

Its goal is to combine scientific excellence with social awareness and responsibility, create new development opportunities for scientists at every stage of their academic career, and discover scientific talents. Implementation period: 3 years.
