The purpose of this study is to present the establishment, activities and the results of the Consortium on Applied Research and Professional Education, which is the strategic network of higher education institutions. The study analyses the role of trust in strategic partnerships and the benefits of networking. The concept of trust has been used to plan the structure of the strategic network and create a cohesive network with common interests. The strategic network promoted student and staff exchange, research and development projects and the sharing of knowledge and good practices. The consortium is the first strategic network of its kind established by five European universities of applied sciences. The findings of this study are useful

The purpose of this study is to describe the educational development of the European strategic network of higher education institutions. The Consortium on Applied Research and Professional Education was established to promote the collaboration of five universities of applied sciences. The study analyses the learning and teaching modes using the approaches of blended learning and innovation pedagogy and describes their usability in the strategic network of higher education institutions. The strategic network promotes student and staff exchange, conferences and joint research and development projects. There are also emerging joint educational programmes and ideas to expand the educational programmes to achieve joint degrees. The findings of this study are useful to those who aim to improve collaboration in international networks and improve institutional performance.

This collection is based on the first CARPE conference held in Utrecht on 2-4 November 2011. CARPE is a European strategic network aiming at joint applied research and development as well as pedagogical development in the fields of professional education. The current members of the network are HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht, Turku University of Applied Sciences, Universitat Politècnica de València and Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, but the conference was also attended by staff members from the Manchester Metropolitan University.
This publication is hoped to promote a wide range of joint research and development projects. With active participation in the projects funded by the European Union and other funding bodies, the future of the CARPE network will be fruitful, enabling the universities of applied sciences to increase the competitive advantage of Europe.

The 2nd Biennial CARPE conference was hosted by Manchester Metropolitan University from the 4th – 6th of November 2013 with over 150 delegates in attendance, including executive members of the partner institutions. This conference was an important opportunity for staff from across the CARPE institutions to come together and share expertise on research and teaching. To facilitate that process, it was organised into a series of themes reflecting major areas of collaboration for CARPE, with 90 papers and 22 poster presentations being received across the different themes.
The conference report contains an overview of topics discussed, links to papers presented and conclusions about opportunities for future collaboration.
