The UNITE! Dialogue Meeting is coming back and will take place entirely online – this time hosted by Universidade de Lisboa. This event will gather faculty, staff, students and top management members of the seven partners of UNITE!.

The second UNITE! Dialogue takes place online.

On the 30. September the participants will have the opportunity to attend general sessions, in which will be presented the state-of-the-art of the project and the perspectives for the Consortium in the near future, and the work developed by the different Task Forces of the Alliance.

Moreover, in the afternoon, it will be possible to discuss the challenges that the Alliance partners are facing within co-creation sessions. Their contribution of the different topics will be discussed and collected with the participation of UNITE! students’ representatives.

The main goals of the UNITE! Dialogue are to raise awareness, inform about UNITE! activities within the Alliance, and to get students and staff further involved in the Alliance.

Universidade de Lisboa is looking forward to welcoming you online.

About UNITE!

Alongside TU Darmstadt as the coordinator, UNITE! (University Network for Innovation, Technology and Engineering) also includes Aalto University (Finland), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), Grenoble Institute of Technology (France), Politecnico di Torino (Italy), Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Spain) and Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal).

The seven partner universities aim to use the European University to create a trans-European campus for students and researchers with the involvement of regions and companies. The partners have a total of 167,000 students, already cooperate closely in more than 80 EU projects and have exchanged more than 2,000 students in the past five years. The alliance has set itself the goal of combining courses for the benefit of students, breaking down existing technical and administrative hurdles, and thus significantly increasing student mobility. Research will also benefit from the conditions created for larger and easier cooperation, which will strengthen the competitiveness of the European Higher Education Area overall.

UNITE! is being funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, while the INSPIRED project within UNITE! is receiving funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research via the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
