Utrecht University: CHARM-EU conference “European Universities’ cooperation: towards sustainable transdisciplinary partnerships”

Cooperation between different stakeholders in Higher Education is becoming more relevant to enhance sustainable innovation, digital transformation, citizen wellbeing, equitable and inclusive societies, and economic development. This vision has been reinforced particularly by the European Universities Initiative and through a number of European policy/action areas including the New European Green Deal, EU Digital Education Action Plan, New European Bauhaus, the New European Research Area (ERA), the European Education Area and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The CHARM-EU Annual Conference will provide a platform for the European Universities Initiative to strengthening its strategic partnership across the EU between higher education institutions. With this conference we want to focus on the innovation and trends in Higher Education and how European University Alliances deliver a contribution in this development during the first phase and in the future during the next roll out.

A strategic and coordinated action towards enhancing ‘knowledge square’ cooperation (education, research, innovation, and business & society), based on a transdisciplinary approach, could have a major impact in addressing societal challenges. During the last two years, the European Universities Initiative is proving to be an effective means to foster this cooperation whilst developing a new university model and citizens of the future through education, research, innovation, external engagement and digitalization.

At the CHARM-EU Annual Conference, different elements of this topic will be discussed, including the benefits of multistakeholder cooperation at local, national, and regional levels, the importance of a common agenda based on knowledge sharing and how to consolidate this interaction to develop innovative solutions to meet societal challenges in a just and inclusive way.
