LEADING ULYSSEUS TO BECOME A EUROPEAN UNIVERSITY EXCELLENCE MODEL THROUGH RESEARCH AND INNOVATION

Project description

Ulysseus as a model of excellence for R&I

The EU-funded COMPASS project is the flagship for Ulysseus European University's research and innovation agenda and strategy. Officially kicking off with a meeting of the six Ulysseus partner universities, the project aims to boost synergies between the European Research Area and the European Education Area. As one of the 24 selected alliances for proposals under the 2020 Erasmus+ work programme, Ulysseus envisages developing an excellency-recognised, internationally attractive, person-centred and entrepreneurial European University by 2030. In this direction, COMPASS will support the development of strategies and concrete action plans to position Ulysseus as an institutional transformation model at research and innovation level.

Objective

The Ulysseus European University is one of the 24 selected alliances from the second pilot call for proposals under the 2020 Erasmus+ work programme. The Alliance faces an ambitious 10 years endeavour that will contribute to shape the European Higher Education Area and the European Research Area , and hence the future of Europe. Ulysseus Alliance’s vision for 2030 is to develop an excellency-recognized and internationally attractive open to the world, persons-centred and entrepreneurial European University for the citizens of the future.

The process of transformation towards this European University involves the generation of both a territorial and digital Innovation Ecosystem, the Ulysseus Innovation Ecosystem. Understanding our Alliance as one Innovation Ecosystem developing solutions for specific R&I challenges from Innovation Hubs, is Ulysseus unique and distinguishing feature. The Ulysseus Ecosystem rests on two solid foundations: the Ulysseus Community , representing the helix and including the 6 Alliance partners and 95 associated partners ; and the Ulysseus Campus.

COMPASS is the flagship for Ulysseus R&I agenda, so its aim is to build upon this vision by establishing Ulysseus as a model of excellence for research and innovation transformation in line with the shared, integrated, long-term joint strategy of the alliance, boosting synergies between the European Research Area and the European Education Area. COMPASS will support the development of strategies and concrete action plans in order to position Ulysseus as an institutional transformation model at research and innovation level. Through COMPASS, the alliance will reinforce their joint long-term vision for research and innovation to drive systemic, structural and sustainable impact at all levels of the institutions involved.
