What is Unite?

The UPC is one of the nine European universities that make up Unite! (University Network for Innovation, Technology and Engineering). This alliance of technological universities works with the support of the European Commission to promote the construction of the future European Education Area through funding for the Erasmus+ and H2020 programmes.

Within Unite!, all the member universities are working on designing and consolidating a new European university model that offers education and research of excellence that focuses on today's main social and technological challenges. The communities of the nine universities develop and participate in projects and activities for implementing future European bachelor's degrees and setting up a European Doctoral School that will focus on strategic areas for the alliance and for Europe, such as sustainable energy, artificial intelligence, Industry 4.0 and entrepreneurship.

Unite! connects different European regions from an academic and research perspective that favours strengthening innovation and knowledge transfer in a multicultural, multilingual, digital and green framework.


To drive technology and innovation towards a green, digital Europe.


Sustainable energy, artificial intelligence, Industry 4.0, entrepreneurship.


The Erasmus+ and H2020 programmes are the alliance's main sources of funding.


The alliance works collaboratively through work groups made up of people from all the member universities.

"Within the Unite! alliance, the UPC actively contributes to designing and implementing new challenge-based learning models and developing digital, hybrid and face-to-face environments. These new environments make it easier for students, academics and researchers to access international teaching and research programmes.

To give shape to the Unite! alliance so that it fits the values and identity of the UPC is, without a doubt, one of the new and stimulating challenges the institution faces in the next five years".

Daniel Crespo, rector of the UPC
