“All the universities that are members of the STARS EU alliance are excited and willing to learn from each other to improve the quality of their education and research, and to help strengthen Europe together. Moreover, the funding will bring us further in our ambitions to make an impact in the world we are living in and tackle societal challenges together. It is a great day for the Alliance, but more importantly for our students, partners, and Europe as a whole,” states the STARS EU coordinator Dick Pouwels from Hanze UAS.
Transforming regions. Empowering people
