The University and EU GREEN

The EU GREEN European University Alliance involves nine universities in Europe. University of Gävle is one of them. The EU GREEN collabo­ration has sustainability as its over­arching theme. It also means that the University of Gävle's education and research is further positioning itself in a European arena.

EU GREEN stands for European Universities alliance for sustainability Growth, Inclusive Education and Environment. The purpose of the European University Initiative is to promote common European values and strengthen the quality of higher education.

The aim is to improve and promote sustainability and to solve societal challenges. The driving force behind the alliance is to build a more just world, a balanced economy, and a more viable environment.

Nine countries – Nine universities

Apart from the University of Gävle, the network includes universities from France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Poland, Romania, Germany and Ireland. The network will develop a model for international cooperation with a strong focus on social inclusion and the green and digital transition, which are important factors for long-term sustainability.

Interdisciplinary research and education will be encouraged, and students will have access to the educational and research offerings of the different universities. Exchange agreements have been signed with all universities, and there will be exchange opportunities for both staff and students.
