Erasmus+ program launched calls for proposals on agreements between European Universities and selected 41 alliances encompassing 280 higher education institution throughout Europe.

EELISA accounts for 170,000 students who will benefit from activities, credits, and dual degrees included in the project for a shared campus. The partners will first focus on Master’s program then extend co-operations on Bachelor’s and PhD programs.

The training offered to students will strenghten their social involvment and their employability and spur the member Universities to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals, especially around diversity and social inclusion. EELISA will also support multi-disciplinarity: students will be offered additional courses in the Humanities and Social sciences.

In line with the ambitions of the commission, the European University EELISA will support European values and aims to become a model of European and international high education.
