RUN European University

RUN-EU (The Regional University Network – European University) brings together nine European higher education institutions from eight 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.

RUN European University aims to jointly develop cutting-edge teaching, learning and research to meet the future competence needs of the surrounding world. Over the course of the three-year projectRUN-EU will deliver short and flexible student and staff mobilities, create research collaboration and research groups, introduce PhD paths, plan and implement double and joint degrees, and also build joint administrative structures.  

In the summer of 2020, the European Commission awarded the European University status to RUN-EU higher education institutions in order to launch the activities of RUN European University during the next three years. 

The RUN European University consists of 7 HEIs: 

All universities are situated outside the metropolitan areas and they play a major role within their region. Polytechnic of Leiria (Portugal) is the coordinator of the network. 

Our students will inherit the future

RUN European University aims to develop high quality teching and reasearch, which develop skills needed in the future societies. 

For students, RUN European University creates new possibilities for short, international study modules – and also more traditional study exchange opportunities. We are developing new double degrees, which offer students possibilites to study their degree in two different countries and get a degree certificate from both universities. One of RUN-EU’s ambitious goals is to open up 24 new double degree programmes.

In practice, our objectives are achieved through eight work packages that aim at creating a joint European University.

  • Work Package 1: Coordination and Management 
  • Work Package 2: European Innovation Hubs  
  • Work Package 3: Future and Advanced Skills Academies 
  • Work Package 4: European Mobility Innovation Centre 
  • Work Package 5: RUN-EU Discovery Program 
  • Work Package 6: Short Advanced Programmes  
  • Work Package 7: Collaborative European Degrees 
  • Work Package 8: Dissemination and Sustainablility 

All RUN-EU higher education institutions participate in all the work packages and each work package has been assigned a leading responsible university. Häme University of Applied Sciences (HAMK) is the leader of Work Package 3: Future and Advanced Skills Academies. In addition, HAMK is the co-leader in Work Package 7: Collaborative European Degrees.

Today we achieved our first goal for the next cycle by securing a new Erasmus+ grant! ✅

🇪🇺 This means we'll keep collaborating strategically for the next four years, while welcoming the 🇪🇸 universidadburgos and 🇧🇪 howestbe as new members, strengthening our focus on regional development.

🌍 Together, we'll provide students, researchers, academics, and staff with green, digital, and inclusive skills, reducing regional disparities in the EU.
