Towards a common Una Europa RESearch and INnovation ecosystem


Una Europa’s ambition is to create a truly European inter-university environment for collaboration in education, research and innovation. We commit ourselves to driving European leadership by creating a University of the Future as an international, value-driven, innovative community of researchers, students and professional services that is open and inclusive. Through the 1Europe ‘European Universities’ pilot project, we are taking the first steps towards creating a single education eco-system for our students, through establishing a Europe-wide living lab for testing Joint Innovative Formats for education and mobility. In Una.Resin, we will take the first steps towards creating a common research and innovation (R&I;) eco-system for our researchers and partners. We will create a university of the future, where our students, researchers and staff, in collaboration with our shared partners and communities, will make the world a better place. In Una.Resin we will create shared strategies on Research and Innovation, Sharing Research Infrastructure and Resources, and Strengthening Human Capital. For each of these strategies, we will develop accompanying action plans and roadmaps and - through a series of pilot actions - begin their implementation. We will test innovative models for barrier free interdisciplinary cross-border collaboration and team science to address societal challenges. We will develop and test new ways of sharing our existing digital research infrastructures with a wider group of academic, non-academic, and citizen stakeholders. We will identify and test solutions to overcome any current barriers that may hinder the establishment of a seamless, common R&I; eco-system. Throughout our joint action plans, we will incorporate specific elements to ensure the mainstreaming of Open Science, and to fully embed both citizens and other non-academic actors in all stages of the R&I; lifecycle.We become a global model for international research collaboration.
