CARPE, the Consortium on Applied Research and Professional Education is the first strategic alliance of a number of European universities of applied sciences. The partners aim to encourage cooperation in European research programmes and jointly develop educational programmes. They will also mutually exchange students and staff. An important point of departure in this collaboration is the link between education, research, businesses and organisations, through which knowledge acquires both social and economic value.

CARPE-partners are: Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, Universitat Politècnica de València, Turku University of Applied Sciences, Manchester Metropolitan University and HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht. > Read more
