Members of the six participating European universities of applied sciences of the U!REKA Consortium (The Urban Research and Education Knowledge Alliance) met in Ghent in April 2018 to decide on research strategy and organizational structure of the alliance.
The Steering Committee of the U!REKA consortium decided that the consortium will create a joint, bottom-up research strategy, which will have a focus on the joint urban research themes of the consortium. In addition, the preparation of a joint degree will be continued.
The Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences will host the third annual U!REKA Conference in November 2018.
In addition to the focus on the urban aspect, the research conference will concentrate on the characteristics of a ‘University of Applied Sciences’: community involvement and applied research in cooperation with companies and institutions in the region.
The U!REKA consortium includes
- Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences - The Netherlands
- Edinburgh Napier University - UK
- Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences - Germany
- Metropolia University of Applied Sciences - Finland
- Oslo Metropolitan University - Norway
- University College Ghent - Belgium
The consortium, founded in 2016, has set itself the goals of jointly tackling research projects in the field of practical research in cooperation with regional companies, to further strengthen the professional and academic education of its students and ensure their future success in the workforce, and to promote mobility amongst teaching staff, employees and students.
