ENGAGE.EU is an alliance of leading European universities in business, economics, and the social sciences, which aims to provide European citizens the set of skills and competences needed to tackle major societal challenges. These existing and new challenges, such as digitalisation and artificial intelligence, climate change, ageing societies and migration, must be tackled successfully to ensure a sustainable and positive future. ENGAGE.EU will inspire active societal engagement in the current and future state of Europe – and beyond.
ENGAGE.EU aims to enable its learners to act as socially engaged European citizens and to have an impact on society at large. Building on our solid background in the social sciences, we strive for a comprehensive approach, following three interconnected paths: Engaged Learning, Engaged Research and Innovation, and Engaged in Society.
A joint ENGAGE.EU university campus with a common course catalogue and a range of real and virtual mobility opportunities embedded into our programmes, challenge-specific signatory courses, and a large offering of micro-credentials to equip our learners with the new skills and competences they need to tackle current and future challenges.
Engaged Research and Innovation
ENGAGE.EU University Think Tank involving Communities for Societal Change that will map societal changes’ causes and consequences and provide analyses supporting the actions of the Alliance.
We will push the boundaries of research and innovation by joining forces with actors from industry, non-profit organisations, and the public sector, aiming for durable impact.
Engaged in Society
ENGAGE.EU Labs for students, lifelong learners, researchers, innovators, companies, citizens’ initiatives, and policy-makers working together to find knowledge-based solutions to real-life problems. ENGAGE.EU Dual Learning Programmes helping practitioners to become influencers and bring change to their organisations, combining the latest academic insights with the highest professional standards.
ENGAGE.EU is a consortium of seven universities – currently an academic home to over 100,000 students, academics, and staff. All partners are leading higher education institutions in their regions and share a profile in the social sciences, partly with special focus on business and economics. These commonalities form the main interest of our joint endeavour. We share European values and a global outlook.
