Arqus Research and Innovation
The Arqus R&I project aims to enhance the research and innovation dimension of the Alliance’s activities and to address current global societal challenges through intensified joint research, characterised by the pursuit of excellence, openness, transparency and effective engagement with society.
The one-year EDLab action was granted in January 2023 200,000 EUR by the European Commission with the aim of testing the implementation of European and international joint degree programmes and the European Degree Label with special emphasis on France, Italy, Portugal and Spain. The project, coordinated by the University of Granada, brings together 13 universities from Spain, Portugal, Italy, France and Belgium representing Arqus and three other European University Alliances (ENLIGHT, EUTOPIA and SEA-EU). EDLab also counts on an extensive network of associate partners, a total of 35, which include national ministries and quality assurance agencies, European and global university networks, student and alumni associations, along with other partner universities from the four Alliances.
The Cyberactioning application was submitted for the European Commission Call Digital-2022-Skills-03, launched in the framework of the Digital Simple Grants Action for fostering specialised education programmes or modules in key capacities areas. The 4-year project was developed by four Arqus universities (University of Granada, University of Minho, University of Padua and Vilnius University), in collaboration with six SMEs and Research Centres (Securiq Sistemas SL, Digitalsign – Certificadora Digital SA, Eurotux Informatica SA, Amped SRL, Qascom SRL, and Fundacion IMDEA Network), all of them covering four different European countries (Italy, Lithuania, Portugal and Spain) and with a high level of expertise in the field of cybersecurity.
