An initiative of the Cross-Border Materials Cluster

This initiative is led by the UMONS-UPHF Transboundary Materials Cluster, a partnership that officially came into being during the EUNICE General Assembly in June 2022 which took place in Valenciennes. The main objective of this Cluster is to strengthen their academic and scientific cooperation, create international opportunities, and facilitate the advancement of knowledge in the materials theme, all driven by a spirit of reciprocity, effort, mutual benefit, and regular interactions in the fields of education and research, all under the patronage of EUNICE and leveraging their respective research and innovation ecosystems.

Promote cooperation between universities with REUNICE

This workshop is a continuation of the project REUNICE, an initiative launched by EUNICE in October 2021 with the aim of promoting cooperation between universities as well as with other sectors, in order to improve the quality and competitiveness of the activities developed within EUNICE.


The European University for Customised Education EUNICE is nurtured by the intellectual and infrastructural contribution of the seven partner universities: the Poznań University of Technology (Poland), the Brandenburg University of Technology (Germany), the University of Cantabria (Spain), the University of Mons (Belgium), the University of Catania (Italy), the Université Polytechnique Hauts-de-France (France), and the University of Vaasa (Finland). In 2023, the EUNICE alliance will be expanded with the official arrival of three new partners: the Viseu Polytechnic Institute (Portugal), the University of Peloponnese (Greece) and the University of Karlstad (Sweden).

The Alliance, selected in the 2020 call of the Erasmus+ program for the specific action Initiative "European Universities", aims at a paradigm shift from traditional education to personalized, flexible, open, multicultural, multicentric, innovative and engaging education, capable of meeting the needs of each student, individual, and more globally of society.
