Una Europa for Academic Staff

Una Europa Seed Funding, visiting professorships, networking, training opportunities and more give you the tools to catalyse innovation.

Collaborate with peers at Una Europa universities on joint research and innovative, and teaching and learning initiatives - with a focus on six interdisciplinary areas:

Una Europa focus areas: cultural heritage, data science and AI, Europe in the world, One Health, sustainability and future materials

Self-Steering Committees

Academic colleagues collaborate through Self-Steering Committees (SSC) organised around these six interdisciplinary themes:

Cultural Heritage

Data Science and Artificial Intelligence

Europe and the World

Future Materials

One Health


Research collaboration is supported, and collaborative grant applications from member universities are encouraged.

Academic researchers interested in joining one of the six Una Europa Self-Steering Committees and collaborating with Una Europa partners on joint research projects can contact Edinburgh’s Una Europa coordinating team:
