  • establish a competence framework embracing new research-driven, challenge-based, and interdisciplinary learning approaches to empower our learners with the necessary knowledge, skills and innovation potential to become globally engaged European citizens.
  • develop an interconnected campus providing access to flexible and high-quality international learning opportunities enabling learners to tailor their curriculum along a stepping-stone path
  • to work closely with our surrounding cities and communities to transform the way in which we address global challenges and develop new methodologies for learning and research, which are adapted to the complex sustainability issues that cities and communities are facing today.
