ENHANCE will drive responsible societal transformation. Our strong alliance of seven European Universities of Technology will inspire and push for the development and utilisation of science and technology, for the benefit of society – turning global challenges into meaningful opportunities.
The ENHANCE Alliance is part of the ERASMUS+ funding programme for European Universities, powered by the European Commission. The initiative aims to create an innovative framework of European networks, fostering increased student and staff mobility as well as innovative forms of learning and engagement with society.
The aim of ENHANCE is to create a new European academic space for the interaction between innovative technological progress, society and our environment. The alliance is committed to socially inclusive and sustainable research and education. It applies inter- and transdisciplinary approaches and methods of co-creation and knowledge-exchange, to tackle to world’s most pressing problems. To unlock our biggest potential, we allow the boundaries within our seven universities and society to become permeable. ENHANCE will ensure that education and research will have a positive social, economic and environmental impact. Our alliance will help to build a joint European sphere of knowledge, underpinning sustainable development, adhering to the highest standards of good practice in teaching and research, inclusivity and diversity.
ENHANCE represents a new alliance of research-intensive universities with a focus on science and technology, based on long- standing bilateral or network cooperation among two or more of the member institutions in other configurations. Our Alliance can thus draw on the experience, tested models and methods of collaboration at different academic levels in the various predecessor arrangements, scale these up to the level of the new confederation and enhance them by developing new structures and processes to make a quantum leap in cooperation.
