Engaged and Entrepreneurial European University as Driver for European Smart and Sustainable Regions

E³UDRES² is a European University Alliance - a network of higher education institutions that collaborate closely in order to have a substantial impact in higher education.

Stronger Together

The E³UDRES² Alliance is one of 50 European University Alliances in Europe - an initiative launched by the European Commission, indicating excellence in the field of higher education.

Together as E³UDRES², the institutions are able to pool knowledge, core competences and skills of all their staff and students. With the power of all the individual institutions united, E³UDRES² is able to actively shape and further develop not only its individual institutions, but also the regions they are located in.

What about the numbers in E³UDRES²?

E³UDRES² is an acronym for Engaged and Entrepreneurial European (3xE = E³) University as Driver for European Smart and Sustainable (2xS = S²) Regions. Sounds more complicated than it really is - if you say E³UDRES² out loud, you would just say it as "EUDRES" (sounds like you-dress), without any numbers involved.

Any questions?
