Meet ENLIGHT, a new European University Alliance! UGent coordinates this network of 9 diverse universities, shaping the education of the future!

ENLIGHT will host a virtual kick-off week with several public sessions: inspiring keynotes, exciting lectures, a roundtable, virtual thematic networking, a cultural session and student perspectives!

The ENLIGHT consortium was selected in the frame of “European Universities", the EC’s pilot program for new multilateral networks.

ENLIGHT stands for 'European University Network to promote quality of life, sustainability & global engagement through Higher Education Transformation'. It unites 9 universities:

In the long term ENLIGHT wants to create an open space between the 9 universities for learning, teaching and working together. Save the date!
