The 4EU + European University Alliance brings together six prestigious and public universities dedicated to research. The four founding universities of the Alliance, Charles University (Czech Republic), Heidelberg University (Germany), Sorbonne University (France) and the University of Warsaw (Poland), signed the Declaration on the 4EU Alliance on March 10, 2018 in Paris, in recognition of their long-standing cooperation. The Alliance has expanded to two universities, the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) and the University of Milan (Italy), 4EU thus becoming 4EU +. The rectors of the six institutions signed a Memorandum of Understanding in Heidelberg in January 2019. The Alliance project is based on a common vision of a European university that adheres to academic values, ensures equitable access to education, and shapes the next generations of open-minded citizens who are ready to face global challenges and solve them.
Since March 2018, the Alliance has organized online each week and organized more than 25 face-to-face meetings and workshops that brought together more than 200 participants, including university leaders, students, professors, researchers and academic staff. More than 100 proposals for joint research, training and staff skills development projects were presented, the majority of which are anchored in 4EU + Flagship programs:
• Urban health and demographic change
• Europe in a changing world: understanding and engaging societies, economies, cultures and languages
• Transforming science and society by advancing information, calculation and communication
• Biodiversity and sustainable environmentFor more information, visit the 4EU + Alliance page: https://4euplus.eu/4EU-10.html
