The Young Universities for the Future of Europe (YUFE) aims to bring a radical change by becoming the leading model of a young, student-centred, non-elitist, open and inclusive European University based on the cooperation between higher education institutions, public and private sector, and citizens.
Due to their truly international and interdisciplinary profile, student-centred approach and strong embeddedness within local communities, the YUFE partners are in the perfect spot to build a modern higher education eco-system, contributing to equipping Europe with the human capital needed to resolve its greatest social and technological challenges.
Student mobility: Students will be able to move in a seamless way between levels, programmes, modes (blended: physically and virtually), areas (research, innovation, work), duration (full-time and part-time), location and country.
Career development: Career paths and professional development exchanges, as well as internships and training at both academic and non-academic partners of the YUFE Regions, will be supported and provided to both professionals and students.
Connecting and co-creating with local citizens: Students will become involved in the local community by volunteering, setting up citizen helpdesks and by contributing to the development of housing solutions via a co-living programme.
Collaborating with local governments and enterprises: Local/regional governments and SMEs will be partnering with YUFE to foster a bottom-up, Europe-wide co-creation process in social engagement, innovation and entrepreneurship.
