Summary:
UNA Europa is an alliance of eight universities with the ambition to move their cooperation to the next level. Long-term goals are (i) to create a Europe-wide academic lab environment for joint actions in education, research and innovation, (ii) to establish international, problem-oriented, (inter)active modules at course and programme level, and (iii) to realize interdisciplinary, transnational and inclusive education rooted in European values. 1EUROPE builds the backbone of UNA Europa in its progress towards full operation in 2025 as a European university of the future: a value-driven, innovative, international community of students, academics and support staff. The alliance rethinks international curricula and mobility to make them scalable, accessible, flexible, high-quality and cost-effective. This living lab develops and tests Joint Innovative Formats (JIFs) for Education and Mobility, combining face-to-face, blended and online teaching and learning. Research-based course and curriculum design leads to a 100% mobility rate.

The tools developed in this project are meant to be replicable within new educational contexts and with other partners. All outcomes are publicly available to ensure maximum multiplier effects. The primary focus is on four interdisciplinary areas: European Studies, Cultural Heritage, Sustainability and Data Science & AI. International Academic Incubators seek to develop and implement Joint Bachelors in European Studies and Sustainability, a Joint Doctorate in Cultural Heritage, and Lifelong Learning Certificates in Data Science & AI, Cultural Heritage and Sustainability. JIFs for Mobility will be piloted simultaneously. As reference knowledge centres, the incubators will lead to an International Campus offering multilateral Bachelors, Masters and PhDs. As a European university ecosystem, UNA Europa builds communities, facilitates modern administration models, and contributes to national and EU policies by optimising regulations, leading to a united and competitive EHEA.
