Get ready for the 5th Unite! Dialogue

Unite! is a European University Alliance of Aalto University and 6 other high-level European technical universities. Every six months, staff and students from the seven universities meet for a dialogue and cooperate around the various themes and activities of Unite!. The 5th Dialogue is organized by the Royal Institute of Technology KTH in two parts - online in March and onsite in June 2022.
The 5th Unite! Dialogue in 2022 is organised by the Royal Institute of Technology KTH.

The Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH) will host the next Unite! Dialogue under the title New Horizons, which will take place in two parts: first in March (online event) and in June (face-to-face event). The aim was to meet in person in Stockholm in March, but the often rapidly and abrupt changes the pandemic has brought means that adjustments had to be made. The 5th Dialogue will therefore be split into two parts (March and June). This will allow for discussions to continue and decisions to be made in a timely manner whilst ensuring the safety and well-being of everyone involved.

8th – 10th of March: Online event. Part one is a digital event that will take place on the 8th – 10th March. This event will include sessions for Unite! Governing Platform, Unite Academic Forum, Plenary H2020 and General Assembly H2020 (further information will be sent to concerned parties separately).

Everyone from Aalto University is welcome to attend the Unite! Dialogue Plenary session on the 9th of March. The session will focus on current developments of Unite!. This meeting takes place at 11-13 Finnish time and will be online via Zoom. Register for the plenary session 

13th–15th June: On-site event. Part two will be an on-site Unite! Summer Community event in Stockholm.  This event gives the E+ Task Forces and H2020 Work Packages a chance to meet and discuss the latest developments. A preliminary programme and registration information will be available after the March event.

The Unite! Dialogues
