Una.Universitas

An ambitious four-year project funded by the Erasmus+ Programme’s European Universities Initiative. The University of Bologna is ready to take the next steps together with Una Europa towards the development of a truly integrated European University of the Future

Una Europa has secured the European’s Commission’s support to proceed with Una.Universitas, an ambitious four-year project funded by the Erasmus+ Programme’s European Universities Initiative. The €14.4m grant will support Una Europa to take the next steps towards its ambition of developing a truly integrated European University of the Future.

Building on the achievements of the alliance’s flagship projects, 1Europe and Una.Resin, Una Europa will pursue a holistic approach under Una.Universitas to ensure the true integration of the alliance’s education, research and innovation dimensions.

The University of Bologna has always played a fundamental role in the Alliance in implementing innovative formats for mobility. In this new project, the University of Bologna will continue to define and implement the strategy on the transversal theme of mobility. It will also play a crucial role in supporting and further developing the backbone of the UNA Europa Campus through specific activities to empower the professional staff, spread the possibility of cooperation among partners and foster a sense of belonging; by finding standard tools which can help in implementing organisational changes and more integration among partners.

The alliance community will be the project’s driving force: students, academics and professional staff will be empowered to develop bottom-up activities and will take on central roles in the alliance’s governing bodies.

Una.Universitas will further Una Europa’s mission to build a joint educational offering fit for the Graduates of the Future. By providing multidisciplinary research-based education at all levels of higher education – including research modules and research internships from Bachelor level – Una Europa will ensure graduates are future-ready in an interconnected and rapidly changing world.
