Research Luxembourg takes part in Beyond UNIVERSEH
12 October 2021
UNIVERSEH is an alliance of five higher education institutions aiming to develop new ways of collaboration in the field of space, within the “European Universities” initiative by the European Commission. The consortium recently launched Beyond UNIVERSEH, its Research pillar.
UNIVERSEH focuses on the development of educational activities and innovative collaborations in the European space sector.
The University of Luxembourg is a member of the UNIVERSEH consortium, which also includes Université Fédérale Toulouse Midi Pyrénées (France), Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf (Germany), Luleå tekniska universitet (Sweden) and AGH University of Science and Technology (Poland).
Strengthening Europe’s position in Space and new Space
Created in 2020 as part of the Erasmus+ “European Universities” initiative of the European Commission, UNIVERSEH has the potential to reach more than 140,000 students, researchers and staff.
Reflecting European values, it aims to facilitate mobility and multilingualism, promote student inclusion and diversity, support interdisciplinary programmes, and strengthen pedagogical innovation and entrepreneurship in Europe.
UNIVERSEH is developing an ambitious European programme to support the thriving ecosystem of space activities with the dynamic support of governmental and public bodies as well as of commercial players.
Beyond UNIVERSEH to develop a research policy roadmap for 2035 within the space sector
The main ambition of Beyond UNIVERSEH is to develop a research policy roadmap for 2035 and a vision for 2050 in the space sector. Such a roadmap will build a sustainable and integrated research and innovation network within the alliance and beyond.
The consortium will also create a unique shared and collaborative virtual lab and research community. As such, it has the potential to spearhead new collaborative and interdisciplinary methodologies to improve the outcomes of space research and innovation.
It will connect researchers and stakeholders from multiple backgrounds, promoting a highly multidisciplinary and cross-sector network to address the societal challenges of space and new space.
