The University of Milan participates in 4EU+
Università Statale di Milano, Sorbonne Université of Paris, Charles University of Prague, and the Universities of Copenhagen, Heidelberg and Warsaw: Six partners, one vision: joining forces to build a European University.
Created in January 2019, “4EU+ European University Alliance” is now formally an association. It brings together six public multidisciplinary universities of excellence, with a strong commitment to research, across a vast geographical area spanning from the Mediterranean to the Baltic Sea – Università Statale di Milano, Sorbonne Université of Paris, Charles University of Prague, and the Universities of Copenhagen, Heidelberg and Warsaw.
With an academic community comprising approximately 287,000 students and over 50,000 teaching, research, technical, and administrative staff, the 4EU+ Alliance will develop a new model of advanced cooperation in training, research, and Third-Mission activities, drawing on its core shared values: academic freedom, student-centricity, inclusion, research excellence, interdisciplinary approach.
In building an integrated university system, based on quality and innovation, the Alliance will leverage its four flagship topics: Health – health and demographic change in an urban environment; Europe – Europe in a changing world: social, economic, cultural and language dynamics; Information Science – transforming science and society through the development in computational and information sciences; Sustainable Development – biodiversity, sustainability and sustainable development.
The 4EU+ Alliance cooperates with its associate partners, government institutions and NGOs, whether local, national or European, both in its activities and with a view to a collective Higher Education Transformation Agenda, a recent initiative launched by the European Commission to expedite the integration process of European advanced education systems.
