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 only 44 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.

The E³UDRES² Institutions

The E³UDRES² European University Alliance is comprised of eight institutions - a combination of unique, scientific universities and universities of applied sciences (UAS). In addition, E³UDRES² members are ambitious, flexible, small or medium-sized universities (<15,000 students), located in a small or medium-sized European cities (<250,000 inhabitants) of one of the smaller European countries (<20 million Inhabitants) and anchored in their surrounding environments but internationally connected and active within the European Higher Education Area.
