This public kick-off event marks the start of Una Europa's 1Europe project. Funded under the first Erasmus+ Call for European Universities, 1Europe aims to launch a living laboratory to develop future university models that are both replicable and scalable. The event is opened by Luc Sels, Rector of KU Leuven, and features a keynote by Themis Christophidou, Director-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture at the European Commission. To promote an interactive debate between the panel and the audience, the core of the event is arranged as a fishbowl debate.

" Una Europa is becoming a true powerhouse in Europe, an Alliance of 8 comprehensive very strong leading research-intensive universities with global reputation… Collectively, the networks stands for over half a million in student and staff population. "
