Granada, 18 October 2019

Today, the Arqus governing body, which will be responsible for developing the general policies, medium and long-term strategies, and primary objectives of the Alliance, has been established at the Hospital Real (the seat of the Rectorate of the University of Granada), where the project has been also publicly presented.

Arqus is one of the 17 alliances that have been selected for funding by the European Commission in the pilot phase of this pioneering initiative within the Erasmus+ Programme.

Dorothy Kelly, Full Professor at the University of Granada and Coordinator of the Alliance, highlighted the ambitious nature of the initiative, which aims to foster a structural, systemic and sustainable transformation of the partner universities and, ultimately, the entire European higher education system.

As part of the event, the rectors signed the partnership agreement defining the commitments and internal working procedures of the network for the next three years. Throughout October and November, the six boards responsible for the consortium’s different action lines will be established, as well as the Student Council, with a view to launching the first 3-year programme of work. This ambitious programme encompasses activities in the areas of joint academic offerings and mobility programmes, inclusion, research support, entrepreneurship, multilingualism and European citizenship — each of which is managed by one of the partner universities.
