Joint Projects

4EU+ Educational Projects

Collaboration in education is one of the central objectives of the 4EU+ European University Alliance. 4EU+ intends to build its shared approach to university educa-tion by encouraging collaborative projects bringing together academics from the six 4EU+ member universities.

Flagship 1) Health and demographic change in an urban environment

Changing environments and demographics have direct impact on the health of our citizens. To take on the interconnected issues of an ageing population, urban density and its environmental impacts and healthcare demands, this flagship focuses on the development of new multidisciplinary approaches to research techniques, teaching and learning methods.

Flagship 2) Europe in a changing world: Understanding and engaging societies, economies, cultures and languages

There is a pressing need to address crucial questions such as what challenges lie ahead for a united Europe, which areas could be sources of potential European division and which areas can contribute to stronger European unity across the board.

Flagship 3) Transforming science and society: Advancing information, computation and communication

The proposed flagship is a novel combination of approaches to attack questions about big data and computational sciences. Researchers from the network bring expertise and tools developed in their independent research programs to bear on this problem. We have formed a unique interdisciplinary team of researchers from our network with the computational expertise.

Flagship 4) Biodiversity and sustainable development

An ever-increasing demand on resources and serious disruptions from climate change are topics that must be efficiently addressed by contemporary science, and which must be based on deep understanding of the underlying processes and principles. Adequate education of future specialists in the field must be based on high-quality research, while long-term maintenance of the research community cannot exist without top quality education of new generations of researchers.

Academic Partnership for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (API)

Project sponsored by the Polish National for Academic Exchange NAWA which aims to develop durable solutions in the area of scientific cooperation.
