Unite!: horizon 2022

With a new Erasmus+ call, the integration of two new partners and an already full agenda, the year 2022 promises to be busy for the European university Unite!

A new Erasmus+ call and two new partners


At the end of November 2021, the European Commission launched a new Erasmus+ call in the framework of the European Universities Initiative, of which Unite! is a part. This call will allow Unite! to define its action plan for the coming years and a positive response will ensure funding for at least 4 years. A decision is expected by the end of July.
For Unite!’s president Tanja Brühl, "the new Erasmus+ call gives us the opportunity to define a new Unite! mission statement after two years of intense work of the different working groups of the alliance. Unite! now has sufficient background to define a long-term strategy that will allow it to advance its objectives towards the achievement of a new model of European university of innovation and technology".

A construction that Unite! will now tackle with the integration of two new members: Graz University of Technology (Austria) and Wroclaw University of Science and Technology (Poland). Both are technological universities that share the spirit and dynamic approach of Unite!. During 2022, the onboarding process will take place and will culminate at the end of the year with their full integration into the alliance.

Unite! in 2022


Several key events will take place during the year 2022 for the European University.

  • From 25 to 26 January, the Forum of Universities for the Future of Europe will take place. Set within the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union the Forum will be an opportunity to highlight the role of European universities for the Europe of the future and their contribution to its construction. This event will give Unite! an excellent opportunity to show its results and its active role in transforming the Higher Education area as one of the current 41 European University alliance.

  • On the 3rd and 4th of March, nine students from Unite! universities will take part in the European Students' Assembly at the European Parliament in Strasbourg. The European Students' Assembly, one of the main activities of the European Universities Community (EUC), will be a unique opportunity for students from across Europe to address some of the complex challenges facing the EU today.

  • After the 4th Dialogue organized in Barcelona in November 2021, a new meeting is scheduled for 8-10 March at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) Stockolm for the 5th Dialogue. The 6th Dialogue will take place in Turin and will be organised by Politecnino di Torino (POLITO) in September 2022.
