Creating Links Across the Globe through Networks and Alliances

Trinity understands the value of international institutional collaboration via Networks and Alliances and is a member of numerous prestigious collaborations of this type.

Charm-EU

Charm-EU

  • In 2019 the CHARM-EU project initiated by five research-based universities, University of Barcelona, Trinity College Dublin, Utrecht University, Eötvös Loránd University Budapest and University of Montpellier became a true example of good practice in the European Higher Education landscape.
  • In January 2022, CHARM-EU approved the integration of three new alliance partners: Åbo Akademi University in Finland, Würzburg University in Germany, and Hochschule Ruhr West also in Germany which to date had been an associate partner.
  • CHARM-EU represents a Challenge-Driven, Accessible, Research-based, and Mobile model for the co-creation of a European University aligned with the European Values and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
  • CHARM-EU was created to align with the long-term vision of the European Universities initiative. The diversity of educational systems and the differing geographical, regional, cultural, linguistic, economic, and historical perspectives/challenges of the eight CHARM-EU members contribute to consolidating the University of the Future revealing our common goals on the path towards a more sustainable and inclusive future.
  • In September 2021 CHARM-EU launched a Master’s in Global Challenges for Sustainability which offers a unique international learning opportunity. Students on this programme have the opportunity to address the pressing need for sustainability in a transdisciplinary and challenge-based environment.
  • Activity under this Alliance is managed and coordinated by Trinity Global and the CHARM EU Office at Trinity College Dublin.
