T4EU alliance

In 2020, seven universities from different parts of the European Union teamed up to outline and shape the future of education. Since then, three more universities have joined in together with the associated partner from Ukraine (Mariupol State University) . Among them, an imagined campus has been created to share knowledge and skills. Educational institutions were selected with different orientations and study programs. In this way, Estonian art students could connect with Bulgarian mathematicians, or the future teachers of Alicante could link with Polish polar explorers.

Through the Alliance, the students can easily participate virtually or visit lectures in partner universities. They can engage in different activities together. The program also allows academic staff to gather and share knowledge and resources.

Even though higher education institutions have different backgrounds, they are united by the same values, such as sustainability and environmentalism.

The Transform4Europe project, or in other words, The European University for Knowledge Entrepreneurs, is financed by the Erasmus+ program from the European Commission.

The universities part of the Transform4Europe alliance:

Associated Partner:

  • Mariupol State University (Ukraine)

European Universities’ Initiative
