The CHARM-EU (Challenge-driven, Accessible, Research-Based and Mobile European University) Initiative is a European University alliance, co-funded by the Erasmus + Programme, formed by five prestigious, research-based universities: the University of Barcelona (coordinator), Trinity College Dublin, Utrecht University, the University of Montpellier and Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest. CHARM-EU strives to be an example of good practice to increase the quality, international competitiveness and attractiveness of the European higher education landscape.
CHARM-EU's vision is to have an innovative university model which embraces the change needed to meet society’s challenges, breaking down borders and linking local and global solutions. CHARM-EU aims for a challenge-driven university, creating flexible, student-led educational programmes focused on identifying and solving specific challenges in close collaboration with the broader community.
CHARM-EU represents a Challenge-Driven, Accessible, Research-based and Mobile model for the co-creation of a European University aligned with the European Values, the European Green Deal and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
