ENGAGE.EU : About us

Notre alliance

is an alliance of leading European universities in business, economics, and the social sciences, which aims to provide European citizens with the set of skills and competences needed to tackle major societal challenges. These existing and new challenges, such as digitalisation and artificial intelligence, climate change, ageing societies and migration, must be successfully adressed to ensure a sustainable and positive future. ENGAGE.EU will inspire active societal engagement in the current and future state of Europe – and beyond.

The alliance will harness the unique synergies of its members, bringing a new dimension to existing collaborations based on a joint strategy and common goals. Each member university brings its individual perspective, shaped by its areas of academic specialization as well as its geographic and economic context, to create collective value beyond the potential of individual players.

The alliance offers unique opportunities to educate and inspire a new generation of citizens who will help make Europe a global benchmark in addressing societal challenges. The partner universities want to become an incubator for driving societal change based on academic excellence and working with society. The initiative has been selected to be part of the European Universities 2020 strategy.



ENGAGE.EU is a consortium of seven universities sharing European values and a global perspective:
All of the institutions together currently constitute an academic community of over 100,000 students, scholars and staff.

UT Capitole in ENGAGE.EU

By participating in this alliance, the University of Toulouse Capitole intends to offer its students innovative programs and mobilities on the theme of societal commitment. UT Capitole wants its students to be active learners and future professionals, involved in society. In a clear European perspective, new approaches to research and education will be explored and developed.

With the advent of the Engage.eu project, UT Capitole is now part of a dynamic consortium of quality European universities, which will be constantly striving for excellence in the coming years and beyond.

ENGAGE.EU : The european project behind the University

The European Commission has launched two calls for pilot projects in 2018 and 2019 to test different models of European Universities. Currently 41 3-year projects have been launched.
