ENGAGE.EU is an alliance of leading European universities in the fields of business, economics and social sciences, which aims to provide European citizens with the skills and competences they need to tackle major societal challenges.
Challenges such as digitalisation and artificial intelligence, climate change, ageing societies and migration need to be tackled successfully to ensure a sustainable and positive future, and this is the role of ENGAGE.EU.

How does ENGAGE.EU work?
The alliance exploits the unique synergies of its members, adding a new dimension to existing collaborations, based on a joint strategy and shared objectives. Each member university brings its individual perspective, shaped by its areas of academic specialisation as well as its geographical and economic context, with the aim of creating collective value that goes beyond the potential of individual players.
The alliance offers unique opportunities to educate and inspire a new generation of citizens who will help make Europe a global benchmark in addressing societal challenges. The partner universities want to become an incubator for driving societal change based on academic excellence and working with society. The initiative has been selected as part of the European Universities 2020 strategy.
