U!REKA joint activities

The U!REKA consortium is committed to partnering around the shared themes of applied research, professional education, focus on our students’ future world of work and the professional development of our staff. Want to know more about our joint activities? Read on.

Our eight 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.

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

Another key area where we are funneling our expertise is the Higher Education Research & Development (HERD) network, a key U!REKA initiative focused on boosting our consortium’s R&D activities related to generic higher education practices.

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.

These are but a few of the examples of how we're working together across borders. A comprehensive overview of our joint activities within U!REKA is available here. View our news feed for more information and stay tuned to this page - more information will be added in the near future.
