Cooperation4EU+ European University Alliance
The 4EU+ European University Alliance is a transnational strategic association of Charles University in Prague, Heidelberg University, Sorbonne University in Paris, the University of Warsaw, the University of Copenhagen and the University of Milan.
The alliance aims to create a new quality of cooperation between the six European research universities in education, teaching, research, transfer and administration. Building on existing collaborations, 4EU+ will establish the appropriate infrastructure to bring together students, teachers and researchers from the partner universities.
The cooperation, originally called 4EU, was founded in March 2018 by the universities of Prague, Heidelberg, the Sorbonne in Paris and Warsaw, and expanded in October 2018 under the name 4EU+ to include the universities of Copenhagen and Milan. The partnership grew out of the idea of a European university based on academic freedom and autonomy that wants to offer equal access to education.
Online Conference on Synergies in the European Educational Area
On 19 May 2021 an online conference organised by the 4EU+ Alliance will take place with the aim of discussing general framework conditions for study and teaching in European University Alliances and defining current challenges for implementing joint strategies. Besides members of European University networks, the invitation goes to representatives of the European Commission, ministries and university policy-making institutions. The closing date for applying to attend the event is 14 May 2021.
