We have a vision: to develop an excellency-recognized European University built upon the European values of social cohesion and respect for human rights. We strongly believe that European Universities should be open-to-the-world, solidary institutions beyond European borders.
The six Innovation Hubs are the innovative joint structures for collaboration within the Ulysseus community. They will be at the centre of the co-creation process for transdisciplinary and challenge-driven education, intertwined with research and knowledge transfer programmes, and the promotion of citizen engagement and European values. Our six Innovation Hubs, one at each university, are aligned with six R&D regional and local challenges, in turn responding to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the European Green Deal, and the Horizon Europe clusters and missions.
Whether you are a university, a company, an NGO, or a student or citizen association, we want to hear from you. Ulysseus’ open-to-the-world model keeps its arms open to new institutions that may collaborate with the Alliance. Let us know your thoughts, ideas and proposals by any of these means.
