The Arqus European University Alliance awarded €2 million in the H2020 call for support for the Research and Innovation Dimension of European Universities
We are very happy to announce that the Arqus Alliance has been awarded €2M for a 3-year period to foster the partners’ cooperation in research and innovation. Based on the analysis of existing strengths, prior cooperation and shared strategic research interests, the Alliance will focus on the fields of Artificial Intelligence/Digital Transformation and Green Deal/Climate Change as transversal priority areas for enhanced research collaboration, characterised by their interdisciplinarity. This funding complements the €5M that the Arqus Alliance obtained as one of the first 17 Alliances of the European Universities Initiative funded by Erasmus+, and will contribute to the R&I transformation of the European Universities in synergy with their education dimension.
The project Arqus Research & Innovation is organised around three major challenges, all intended to foster a context to nurture sustainable strengthened collaboration.
The project aims to complement and build on efforts already underway to foster scientific cooperation within the Alliance, and to seek synergies between the education, research and innovation dimensions of Arqus.
