Join us in Brussels on 15 November as we celebrate our 1Europe journey and gear up for the next leg of the Una Europa venture.
Open to friends of Una Europa, this landmark event will showcase the successes of 1Europe and provide an outlook to the future.

Funded by the Erasmus Plus+ Programme’s European Universities Initiative, we set sail towards a University of the Future in 2019. Transitioning from one funding period to the next in late 2022, we will be anchoring in Brussels on 15 November to present our first educational offer and the substantial enabling work behind the scenes.

Meet Una Europa key players at our interactive University of the Future exhibition in the afternoon so you can explore our groundbreaking pilot programmes and join us for a celebratory dinner in the evening.
