The ENHANCE Alliance is an integral part of European society, enhancing co-creation with societal stakeholders and the societal engagement of students, researchers and staff.

As a science and technology Alliance serving society, ENHANCE follows the principle of the knowledge square and the quadruple helix where academia, industry, policymaking and civil society are in the centre of our activities.

The engagement of our Associated Partners and donors in our activities contribute to our vision of empowering people to develop and use science and technology for the benefit of society.

ENHANCE develops a variety of activities in education,  research and entrepreneurship through collaboration

with external partners amongst public, private and non-governmental  organisations.

This collaboration can be formalised on the narrow spectrum first, with an agreement on a one-of-a-kind basis for a focused goal, a limited period and individualised type of activity.

Second, on the broader side of collaboration, ENHANCE offers an Alliance Chair as an academic collaborative relationship between the parties, maximising the generation and dissemination of knowledge and the training of future professionals in areas of common interest.
