COLOURS Alliance

Together with eight other European universities, UPB has joined forces to form the alliance "COLOURS" (COLlaborative innOvative sUstainable Regional univerSities).

In addition to UPB, the alliance includes the following universities:

Together the alliance members represent more than 126,000 students and almost 12,300 employees.

The partners aim to strengthen their European network, increase their international visibility, and promote mobility within Europe. They also work to develop a multidisciplinary approach to jointly address current societal challenges.

All COLOURS partners are deeply rooted in their regional, socio-political, and economic environment. Therefore, their approach also focuses on strengthening cooperation between the respective regions and regional actors.

With a "challenge-based approach" in teaching, research, and knowledge and technology transfer, the partners want to use synergy effects by intensifying their cooperation at all levels. For example, the alliance plans to develop new attractive offers for virtual and physical mobility and to create joint study and teaching activities in the long run. Students will be strongly involved in designing these measures.

If you are interested in cooperating with the COLOURS partners in teaching, research, or administration, please contact us!
