3IN Alliance proposes to become a European University
Today, the 3IN Alliance submitted an extensive proposal—European University of Inclusion, Integration, and Involvement: Transforming Challenges into Resources (ALLIN)— aiming to become one of the European Universities.
European Universities are transnational alliances that will become the universities of the future, promoting European values and identity, and revolutionizing the quality and competitiveness of European higher education. In order to achieve this major step forward, the European Commission is testing different cooperation models for European Universities, with two calls for proposals under the Erasmus+ programme. Today, the EUI is one of the flagship initiatives within the EU’s ambitions to build a European Education Area. As a result of the first call, out of 54 applications received, 17 European Universities involving 114 higher education institutions from 24 Member States were selected.

Our first proposal submitted in 2019 was ranked good, and high scores and supportive feedback boosted our motivation, intensified our collaboration and deepened our insight into how to construct and detail a feasible and coherent long-term plan for the EUI. For the 7 member institutions, 3IN Alliance is a strategic process, not a project. The EUI has already challenged us to transform our strategies, policies, perspective, and focus away from a single project towards a long-term process involving all levels of our institutions.
The evaluation of the proposal takes estimated 5-6 months from now. The 3IN Alliance continues the collaboration, which has already started in terms of student and staff mobility, joint-course planning, and close cooperation in research, development and innovation.
