EURL3A Project

EURL3A is a pilot project within the European framework of the University–Business Cooperation initiative. The main aim of the initiative is to form the so called “Knowledge Alliance” to encourage structured, result-driven cooperation ventures between universities and companies, bridging the gap between the sectors.

The Eurl3A partners are investing in Real Life Learning Labs as seeding grounds for new ideas and for innovative collaboration and learning processes.

The EURL3A project wants to tackle these barriers by improving technical education, making education more efficient and making it more attractive by a dynamic integration of practice and theory by the so called Real Life Learning Lab Concept.

In Real Life Learning Labs multidisciplinary teams of students and young entrepreneurs, under mentorship of professionals from universities and industry work on Real Life assignments from the business sector and on developing new enterprises. During this process relevant theoretical knowledge is edueurl3acated just in time. The Real Life Learning Labs are centred in regional knowledge alliances in which mobility and exchange programs are active. The regional knowledge alliances are coupled as one European network of knowledge alliances for easy accessible knowledge and research capacity and an exchange program on an European level.

The EURL3A project develops the concept in three European countries as a start for a European network of Real Life Learning Lab Alliances.

The envisaged impact is:

  • More and better educated and trained engineers on relevant technologies and competencies for the sustainable NZE built environment
  • Support for enterprises in developing and innovating products en services to enter this market of tomorrow
  • An easy accessible network of knowledge and research capacity on an European level including an exchange and mobility program to support business growth
  • A contribution in speeding up the transition to a sustainable NZE built environment with respect for economic growth on a European level.
