European Universities are part of the EU's Erasmus+ program and are transnational collaborations between different universities in Europe. The aim is to increase mobility between European universities, and to enhance the quality, inclusion and attractiveness of European higher education.
In 2019, 17 groups of higher education institutions were selected for the collaboration and now another 24 European Universities have been added, where Chalmers is one of five Swedish universities participating. In addition to Chalmers, Karolinska Institutet, Linnaeus University, Luleå University of Technology and Uppsala University will be part of a European University. A total of eleven Swedish universities are now participating in the initiative.
Together with six other European technical universities, Chalmers forms the Enhance consortium, the European Universities of Technology Alliance, one of the 24 new European University collaborations. The project will be in progress for three years and with funding of EUR 5 million, the network is to strengthen the integration between the universities and enable an increased international exchange for students, teachers and researchers. The collaboration consists of the following higher education institutions:
- Chalmers University of Technology
- NTNU, Norwegian University of Science and Technology
