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!

Various online sessions will be organised between 1 and 5 March 2021, to find out more about the project and be involved in building the future of the partnership. Register here to participate in the kick-off.

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