The European University of the Seas SEA-EU finalises its proposal at the University of Cádiz 27 January 2019

The Hospital Real building has hosted the coordination meeting of the consortium, with representatives of the universities of Western Brittany, Kiel, Gdańsk, Split, Malta and Cádiz, ahead of the next edition of the Erasmus + Initiative

The University of Cádiz coordinates a proposal for a European University consortium candidacy, made up of the universities of Western Brittany (France), Cádiz, Kiel (Germany), Gdańsk (Poland), Split (Croatia) and Malta. Precisely, these days a coordination meeting is being held with representatives of all the universities involved in the Cádiz Campus.

In this meeting, the six participating European universities are finalising the different work packages that make up the proposal that they are developing within the framework of the Erasmus + European Universities initiative, a highly competitive call, in which it is expected to count for the 2025- 2030 with around 20 European Universities, each of which will be made up of 5 to 8 European institutions of Higher Education. This action will give financial support to its participants to go beyond the existing models of cooperation in Higher Education, with the ambitious mission of generating European Campus.

The European University of the Seas (SEA-EU) integrates universities located in cities with a long historical, cultural and economic tradition around the sea, and covers all European marine basins within its geographical scope. SEA-EU, as explained by its coordinator, intends to “reconsider and rethink knowledge from the periphery, through an inclusive proposal that provides a new vision on equality and development in higher education for Europe. This unique and integrated European campus will be based on mobility and continuing education throughout the professional life of people, from a multidisciplinary perspective.”
