The Unite!H2020 consortium is funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 programme, and it is composed by Politecnico di Torino (coordinator, Italy), TU Darmstadt (Germany), Aalto University (Finland), Grenoble Institute of Technology (France), KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), Universidade de Lisboa (Portugal) and Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya Barcelona Tech (Spain).
In the June co-creation event, all partners looked at which transformations are ongoing at their universities with the aim to align and reinforce partner’s initiatives towards a common open science and innovation institutional vision. Through mutual learning and identification of good practices among universities, the consortium will develop a Unite! Open science and innovation strategic roadmap towards a high impact alliance, the Unite! vision for open science and innovation.
‘We are creating the university of the future – a new kind of collaborative governance model for research and innovation in the digital era. Over the next three years we will provide tools and practical policy recommendations to help create a European university with open science and innovation and its core, to help develop a sustainable world’, says doctoral candidate Rubén Vicente-Sáez, leader for the H2020 working package on open science and innovation.
