Who we are

TORCH (Transforming Open Responsible Research and Innovation through CHARM) is a project funded by the European Union under the Horizon 2020 programme which aims to develop a common Research & Innovation (R&I) agenda for the European universities initiative. TORCH aims to achieve this main goal through the consolidation of CHARM-EU's vision and mission (http://charm-eu.eu/en/mission-vision) based on transdisciplinarity and interculturality to solve complex societal challenges and by reinforcing teaching and research strategies as part of the Vision 2030 developed by the European Commission. 

The overall objective of the TORCH project is to build up the R&I dimension of the CHARM-EU through the development of a challenge-driven transformative agenda based on a transdisciplinary and intercultural vision to solve complex societal challenges.

As in CHARM-EU alliance, TORCH is formed by the University of Barcelona (coordinator), Trinity College Dublin, Utrecht University, the University of Montpellier and Eötvös Loránd University Budapest. Find out more about our partners at:  https://www.charm-eu.eu/alliance
