The European Universities Initiative was launched in 2017 with the vision to create the universities of the future and revolutionise the quality and competitiveness of European higher education. Today, 41 European University alliances have been created following two calls from the Erasmus+ agency. One of alliances is the RUN European University.

HAMK is part of the RUN European University (The Regional University Network – European University), which brings together eight European higher education institutions from six different countries, all committed to a common vision. Together they form the Regional University Network (RUN), the aim of which is to secure economical, societal, cultural and ecological sustainable progress within their regions and among stakeholders.
