ENLIGHT brings together ten renowned research-intensive universities to implement joint strategies for innovation in research and teaching and to promote sustainability and social responsibility. At the forefront are six global challenges: health and well-being, digital revolution and impact of digitalisation, climate change, equity, energy and circular economy, and culture and creativity.
ENLIGHT aims to create an open learning environment that enables students from all disciplines access to the best courses and learning opportunities from all ENLIGHT universities. For more details on our extensive international education and mobility opportunities, please visit this page.
The network offers a wide range of opportunities for educators. In addition to the annual Teaching & Learning Conference, we support teachers through various professional development formats and networking opportunities. We regularly offer funding for organising ENLIGHT courses and summer schools. You can find out more about the ENLIGHT opportunities here.
Research & Innovation
We facilitate the identification of synergies between ENLIGHT partners, the development of joint research and innovation proposals, and the support of young researchers. In addition to further advancing digital research infrastructures and promoting Open Science, we support our researchers with additional tools, such as the R&I Observatory or the Toolkit for Researchers.
