It boosts economic growth, competitiveness and job creation – by investing billions of Euros each year, in thousands of innovative and ambitious projects throughout Europe. On March 31st, the Regiostars awards will honour 19 finalists, divided in 4 categories, and choose as winners the most inspirational and innovative EU-funded projects across the Member States.
01/10/2011The University of the Greater Region (UGR) project brings together seven universities in four different countries. Through the UGR project, students, researchers and professors from these university institutions are able to explore new work and study prospects as well as new research networks, while gaining firsthand experiences of other languages and diverse cultures, thus laying the foundations for a truly European university. The administrative, legal and financial issues raised by the UGR project could lead to the development of solutions that may one day be used by all European universities, thus removing knowledge barriers and at the same time promoting cultural diversity, something highly valued by European citizens.
