EMUNI is pleased to announce that a new co-funded Erasmus+ capacity building project, INVOLVE, is underway.

‘INtegration of sustainable deVelOpment goaLs in uniVErsities for better climatE change management’ – INVOLVE – brings together a consortium of eight partners, including four from Egypt and four from the EU.

The objective is to strengthen the role of Egyptian Universities in the achievement of the United Nations environmental Sustainable Development Goals, or “SDGs,” by: enhancing their organizational governance capacities, creating current and future SDG implementers, and upgrading their operational facilities necessary for the implementation of innovative practices in relation to better climate change management.

The 36-month long project will start 15 January with the kick-off meeting to be held next month at Alexandria University in Egypt, which is the grant holder. INVOLVE will last until 14 January 2024.

The remaining partners are: from Egypt, the Arab Academy for Science and Technology and Maritime Transport, Heliopolis University, Zewail University; from the EU, EMUNI, University of Aveiro (Portugal), University of Sassari (Italy), and the Polytechnic University of Valencia (Spain). 

The INVOLVE consortium looks forward to working on this exciting and dynamic project, which will focus on how universities can contribute to the UN environmental SDGs.
