Through the joining of two new partner institutions, the alliance will be enriched by a broader geographical spread, new collaboration possibilities for teaching and researching, as well as an even more exciting offer to students. ENGAGE.EU partner institutions will continue to put their joint research and teaching efforts into providing solutions and guidance addressing existing and new challenges such as climate change, ageing societies, migration, and digitalisation. Hanken School of Economics and Ramon Llull University will strengthen and widen the endeavour to make an impact and find solutions to these challenging issues facing Europe now and in years to come.

Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner, held a keynote speech at the conference on the topic of Universities’ Role in Green and Digital Transitions. She expressed her appreciation and named the European universities as a source of inspiration for the universities of the future. 

As one of the seven leading European universities in business, economics, and the social sciences we are part of the ENGAGE.EU alliance. The alliance opens up unique opportunities to educate and inspire a new generation of citizens and to lay the foundations for more engaged and more effective research and innovation ecosystems. Learners, researchers, and staff should enjoy seamless mobility to study or work at and with cooperating partner institutions.
