Increasing scientific excellence in the EU periphery
The EU-funded EXPER project will increase the scientific excellence and innovation capacity of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) and Azores University (UAC) through capacity-building activities and international cooperation. The project will initiate collaborations with the leading universities of Rostock in Germany and Calabria in Italy, focusing on research fields relevant to the blue economy and circular economy. EXPER will raise the excellence profile of ULPGC and UAC, increase their attractiveness to local and international talents, and design and plan the institutional transformation of the universities. The project will focus on knowledge transfer by organising supporting activities and set the basis for a European University Alliance.
Budget: 1 975 312.50€ (100% financed)
