YUFE Alliance secures significant funding to develop its research and innovation dimension

The YUFE Alliance has received an additional funding of 2 million euros to develop its research and innovation (R&I) dimension. The newly funded YUFERING project (YUFE Transforming Research and Innovation through Europe-wide KNowledGe Transfer) is supported by the dedicated Horizon 2020 Science with and for Society (SwafS) call for European University alliances. The University of Cyprus will coordinate the YUFERING project. The University of Eastern Finland is a partner in the YUFE Alliance.

The YUFERING project will set out actions and recommendations towards a model of R&I system, where excellence and inclusivity unite European universities and the R&I ecosystem they are part of through knowledge transfer, community engagement and exploitation across all sectors, stakeholder groups and countries. Among other things, the YUFERING project will foster the promotion and implementation of Open Science, the development of a common R&I agenda of the YUFE institutions, and the strengthening of academic-business collaborations that benefit research and innovation ecosystems across Europe and beyond.
