Event description
The launch of the 1Europe pilot - We aim to co-create a European University of the Future

About this Event

We invite you to the kick-off UNA Europa's ‘European Universities’ pilot - 1Europe

Engage in our fishbowl debate, arranged to promote interactive debate between the panel and you, our guests.

Bring your ideas and join in the conversation on the role of European Universities in strengthening the European Research Area, in shaping the University of the Future and in developing a true European Higher Education Area.

There are high expectations for the first ‘European Universities’ pilots that are funded by the Erasmus+ programme that were launched in autumn 2019. To reach the goal of creating a truly European campus with high societal impact, strategies for collaboration across education, research and innovation will be required. We're joined by Ms. Themis Christophidou, Director-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture, European Commission to mark an important step forward in supporting these integrated strategies.

Honorary speakers

  • Prof. Luc Sels, Rector of KU Leuven
  • Ms. Themis Christophidou, Director-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture, European Commission
  • Moderated by Charlotte Van Velthoven, Charly Speaks

About UNA Europa

UNA Europa brings together a community of eight leading research-intensive universities, 415,000 students and 68,000 staff, including 37,000 academic staff.

Our mission is to create a truly European inter-university environment, where outstanding research is continuously linked to transnational learning and innovative, critical thinking. Central to the success of the European Higher Education Area, UNA Europa seeks collaboration with a broad range of stakeholders from the very beginning of its activities.

1EUROPE is our three-year pilot funded under the Erasmus+ Call for European Universities. UNA Europa is launching a living laboratory to develop future university models that are both replicable and scalable, providing a constant drive to create high-quality outputs that can easily be adopted and implemented in different contexts.

Beyond the 1EUROPE pilot, UNA Europa will ensure the success and sustainability of the alliance and actively contribute to the development of the European Higher Education and Research Areas. In February 2019, the UNA Europa association (vzw) was formally established in Brussels to deliver this long-term goal.
