Research in EU-SYNC
To support universities as they build European-wide university networks, and in addition to funds provided by the EU, the Federal Republic of Germany is granting around €23 million to 25 German universities until 2023. The goal of the European University Networks (EUN)—national initiative program is to strengthen cooperation among European universities in the areas of teaching, research, transfer, and innovation.
Universität Hamburg has now also been accepted to the national funding program alongside its consortium partners University of Pisa, Tallinn University, Nova University Lisbon, University of Novi Sad, and Paris-Lodron University of Salzburg. The six universities form the European Multiversity for Synergie, Inclusion and Innovation (EU-SYNC).
In the 2021–2023 funding phase, the DAAD project Research in EU-SYNC will focus on interdisciplinary research within the consortium and further consolidate existing cooperation and infrastructure. The activities planned will facilitate innovative research, learning, and teaching as well as virtual networking and teaching in order to foster diversity, equal opportunity, and inclusion.
