Una Europa 2030 - Share your ideas now!

On 6 May, we launched Una Europa 2030, an interactive process to define Una Europa's mission and vision for the next decade! Our rectors made a start with an active discussion at the General Assembly. Now we turn to the Una Europa community at large!

The right choices - for our community, with our community

Are you a student, an academic or a staff member at one of our universities? Then Una Europa 2030 is your opportunity to make your voice heard.

With many activities under way in the alliance and plenty of opportunities on the horizon, Una Europa 2030 is meant to identify needs, capture ideas and prioritize future action.

Where do we go from here? What do we stand for in the future? How do we want to study? What kind of research will be relevant? What will this alliance look like? Where can we, as Una Europa, be stronger together?

How to get involved?

We have set up a digital platform where participants can share their ideas and discuss with colleagues from across the whole Una Europa community. The platform stays open until 16 July 2021 – but feel free to start participating already today!

The collected ideas and the ensuing discussions will form the groundwork for building a joint strategy for Una Europa. The analysis of the ideas will be shared with the community in November 2021 when we will also kick off the second phase of the process at management level. The new strategy is expected be ready for action by May 2022.

Colleagues and students from the Una Europa universities except FU Berlin can log in with their MS Office 365 accounts. FU Berlin colleagues, please choose the login with a Viima account option, sign up to a Viima account with your address and create a unique password.

Participants are invited to use the suggested hashtags or create new ones and click 'like' to amplify messages.

Our digital platform gathers thoughts and ideas in the following categories:

  • Act global: We can only tackle today’s most pressing societal challenges if we work together with our partners across the globe - to promote excellence, nurture talent and support capacity-building. Whether it’s about reaching our joint climate goals or addressing current and future health emergencies, we are committed to openness to grow solutions for the future together.
  • Connect with our communities: Una Europa is created by and for our community and society at large. Without the commitment and engagement of our communities – students, academics, professional staff and university leadership– and the support of our local partners we would not be able to trial exciting new initiatives, succeed in our ambitions goals and build a true European inter-university campus.
  • Enhance our values: Una Europa is not a place, but a body of knowledge, ideas, and values that transcends borders, languages, cultures and time. We are committed to empowering our community in all its diversity to stand up for our common values of inclusion, gender equality, multilingualism and multiculturalism.
  • Learn for Life: At Una Europa, we are educating the citizens of the future. We are committed to finding new, more flexible and creative ways of learning and are already implementing truly innovative joint formats across our eight universities. In order to transform education in a lasting way for the graduates of the future, we need to engage closely with our most important stakeholder group: our students.
  • Conduct research for the future: As eight leading research-intensive universities in Europe, Una Europa is committed to fostering a truly supportive environment where our researchers – young and experienced – can thrive. We foster excellence by supporting increased research mobility and collaborative research across the globe and advocate for increased funding opportunities that will allow our academic communities to engage in ground-breaking research.
  • Use your wildcard: Una Europa is an intellectual playground where critical minds can expand to their full aspiration. We are also resolutely independent and shape our own standards.

Better together: First successes

A lot has been going on in the busy universe of Una Europa over the last months and even more is in the pipeline. The 1Europe Annual Report gives an overview of key highlights and next steps. We also started a Podcast Series showcasing key building blocks of our University of the Future. Tune in here or find us on Spotify.
