Our seven higher education institutions partner in a number of ways, working to strengthen our ties across Europe and to build upon the urban expertise that we share as knowledge institutions.

Our network is currently preparing its bid for the upcoming European Universities Initiative (EUI 2023). We aim to to transform our network into one of the ambitious European Universities alliances and take our collaboration to the next level.

The annual U!REKA Connects event is the networking opportunity of the year for our consortium, bringing together key teachers, researchers and administrative staff to discuss and develop new education or research projects and collaborations.

Colleagues within our Mobility Working Group focus on fostering mobility across U!REKA by contributing expertise in creating, maintaining and developing approaches to mobility provision within all partner institutions.

The U!REKA Research Support Working Group focuses on setting up and facilitating joint research initiatives and research projects between the U!REKA partners, providing expertise and proposal development support for researchers across the consortium.

In our U!REKA Lab: Urban Commons, we have an international and interdisciplinary blended learning and research project that deal with urban commons and focuses on different co-creation initiatives in five partner cities.

Our successful U!REKA Change Agents programme runs across many of our partner institutions, challenging students to work together on joint projects focusing on the topic of water sustainability.

These are but a few of the examples of how we're working together across borders.
