Erasmus+: The European University

European universities are transnational alliances bringing together several higher education establishments in Europe in order to create hubs of excellence in terms of training, research and innovation. These Alliances must not only promote mobility and internationalization of higher education but also create the appropriate conditions for the development of innovative projects in order to meet Europe's societal challenges.

Ulysseus Alliance

The Ulysseus Alliance aims to build a long-term alliance, a common structure and strategy for education and research, linked to the priorities of member regions and cities. Its objective is to contribute to competitiveness, innovation and employability, as well as to promote active citizenship, social inclusion, cohesion and personal development of students and citizens.
This alliance, coordinated by the University of Seville, also includes the University of Genoa (Italy), Université Côte d'Azur (France), the Management Center Innsbruck (Austria), the Technical University of Košice (Slovakia) and the Haaga -Helia University of Applied Sciences (Finland). In 2022, 2 new members joined the alliance: the University of Munster (Germany) and the University of Montenegro. The Ulysseus project goes beyond the academic environment and has the support of governments as well as political, social and economic actors in the geographical areas concerned. Université Côte d'Azur benefits, for example, from the support of the Nice Côte d'Azur Metropolis and the Sophia Antipolis Urban Community.
The participation of students and citizens is one of the added values of this project and this is why representatives of student associations from France (Fédération des associations et corporations des études des Alpes-Maritimes), from Slovakia (BEST Student Association ) and Spain (University of Seville) Association), as well as citizens' associations, were among the supporters and signatories of the Mission Statement of Ulysseus today.

An educative platform based on Make Code, Circuit Python & Scratch for creativity and participatory sciences using IoT boards

The LET'S STEAM project enables teachers to learn about programming possibilities for teaching science to secondary school pupils. The aim is to ensure that the Code can contribute to a cross-disciplinary approach to all scientific and artistic objects through creativity rather than focusing on IT equipment and technology. 
With LET'S STEAM, the goal is to think outside the box and break down the barriers between programming, creativity and science.

The Jean Monnet initiatives have the goal of promoting teaching and research excellence in European Studies across the world.  These activities also aim to promote dialogue between the academic world and policy makers, with the notable aim of strengthening the governance of European Union policies.
European Studies includes the study of Europe as a whole, by placing specific attention on the European integration process both internally and externally.  The subject also covers the role of the EU in the globalization age and promoting a European citizenship and dialogue between citizens and cultures.

The Jean Monnet Chair "European Union and Crisis Management" is held by Professor Anne Millet Devalle

Jean Monnet Chairs are teaching positions specializing in European integration studies. Holders of a Jean Monnet Chair teach a minimum of 90 hours per academic year, in the field of European integration studies. The Chairs are awarded to the University to which the holder depends and offer significant support for research, teaching and the dissemination of knowledge relating to the EU.
The Jean Monnet Chair awarded in September 2019 by the European Union to Professor Anne Millet-Devalle focuses on the theme "The European Union and crisis management". It aims to address crises of various natures (legal, institutional, health, humanitarian, financial, security, etc.) requiring a reaction from the Union, whether they occur outside its borders or within it, or concern the Union itself, such as Brexit.
