COLOURS: the alliance of 7 European universities

Seven European universities have joined forces to form the Alliance "COLOURS" (COLlaborative innOvative sUstainable Regional univerSities).

Together, they want to strengthen their European network, increase their international visibility and strongly promote mobility within Europe. They also plan to develop a multidisciplinary approach to jointly meet current societal challenges.

In addition to Le Mans University, the Alliance includes Paderborn University (Germany), the University of Castilla-La Mancha (Spain), the University of Ferrara (Italy), Kristianstad University (Sweden), Jan Dlugosz University (Poland) and Josip Jurai Strossmayer University of Osijek (Croatia). Together they represent about 120,000 students and almost 12,000 employees.

All COLORS partners are closely linked to their regional socio-political and economic environments. Therefore, their approach also focuses on strengthening the cooperation between the respective regions and regional stakeholders.

Following a "challenge-based approach" in teaching, research as well as knowledge and technology transfer, the partners’ aim is to make use of synergy effects by intensifying their cooperation on all levels. For instance, the Alliance plans to develop new attractive opportunities for virtual and physical mobility and, in the long term, intends to create joint study and teaching activities. Students are strongly involved in the design of these offers.

  European universities

On 22 March 2022, the partners submitted a joint application for funding as a part of of the European Commission's call for proposals "European Universities” to further develop their newly founded Alliance.

The selected alliances will receive funding to improve the quality of European higher education and promote cooperation between institutions, their students and employees as well as cross-border mobility throughout Europe.

At the end of July, the European Commission is expected to announce which applications have been successful. The partners of the COLOURS Alliance intend to expand their cooperation in any case.
