5th Dialogue : a turning point for Unite!

The 5th Unite! Dialogue, “New Horizons”, took place on 8-10 March, hosted by KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. The two new future partner universities - Graz University of Technology and Wroclaw University of Science and Technology - presented themselves to the alliance community and the Dialogue was the first event at which the Horizon 2020 project was fully represented.

Hosted by KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, this 5th dialogue was organised both physically and virtually. Up to two representants of each partner university could go to Sweden and discuss the future of Unite!’s two main projects: Erasmus+ and UNITE.H2020. Among them, the two future partner universities were represented: Graz University of Technology in Austria and Wroclaw University of Science and Technology in Poland.

Around 230 participants including leaders, academics, staff and students from the seven alliance universities and the two future members attended the open plenary session on March 9. Tanja Brühl, President of Unite! welcomed the new partners and expressed great hopes for the future development of Unite! in her welcome speech:

We selected the title “New Horizons” for this Dialogue. I think it is a perfect frame for this event, but also for where we currently are as an alliance and what we are aiming to set for the future.”, mentions Unite! President Tanja Brühl.

The discussions that took place at the 5th Dialogue will be pivotal for the future of the alliance and in light of the recent international scenario, the values of respect, tolerance, unity and progress that Unite! incarnates will be of even higher relevance in the years to come., adds Mirko Varano, Key Liasion Officer for Unite! at KTH.
