The National Technical University of Athens in cooperation with eight other leading Higher Education Institutions in the European Union, have initiated since 2020 the Alliance EULiST “European Universities Linking Society and Technology” that aims to be the central actor in a knowledge square where education, research, innovation and society come together in the shared production of knowledge.
EULiST intends to drive development of high quality, innovative course content, equipping students to face a future where technological and social developments intertwine. Flexible learning and modes of delivery will extend the reach of educational offers to a wider community of learners. Research and Innovation will address challenges identified by societal stakeholders, promoting involvement of new researchers and external actors.About the Alliance
EULiST Alliance has been extended to 10 university members with the addition of IMT Institut Mines-Télécom. IMT has several existing ties to EULiST members, including NTUA, and holds the same vision to create one joint European University.
