Pioneer European university network

Laurea University of Applied Sciences is part of the PIONEER alliance of ten European higher education institutions. The aim of the alliance is to promote the strategic development of future cities through education, research, development, and innovation activities as well as ecosystem cooperation.

The PIONEER alliance brings together researchers, educators, students, innovators, business leaders, urban decision-makers, and citizens to work on the topics which address solutions to SDG11 related questions. The focus is to support the development of sustainable, resilient, inclusive, and safe cities.

In the activities of the PIONEER alliance, EU-funded research, development and innovation projects, staff and student mobility, stakeholder events, joint publications and academic articles are means of promoting cooperation between partner universities and their own regional cooperation on urban transition aspects.
