Fostering Institutional Transformation of R&I Policies in European Universities

FIT FORTHEM is a Horizon 2020 project aimed at making FORTHEM Alliance a unique and united entity – a European University – not only with a strong higher education strategy, as developed within the Erasmus+ project, but also with a comprehensive research and innovation strategy and tight links to socio-economic environment.

We assist FORTHEM in turning into a breeding place of innovative thinking and entrepreneurial spirit. The unique characteristics of each institution are analysed and actions are devised according to specific needs.

We foster knowledge circulation and give researchers, research managers, early career academics, administrative staff and students a possibility to use services and upscale professional skills in various areas – from project management to open science, from human resources to science communication.

We allow efficient pooling of resources – human and technical – rather than a mere accumulation, by offering solutions for connecting, accessing and sharing institutional resources and infrastructures.

We ensure sustainability for well-functioning living FORTHEM Labs that are excellent international spaces for innovative teaching and cutting-edge research. In this way, expert structures and transformative knowledge are built to be easily and jointly exploited further.

We promote co-creation of knowledge with external entities and ensure dissemination of developed solutions to various stakeholders.

We join forces with local and European networks (societal, business, cultural, political) and current and future European Universities in order to maximize our outreach and impact on science and education policies.
