Politecnico di Torino (PoliTO) is hosting the VI Unite! Dialogue from the 20th until the 22nd of September, bringing together the activities developed in the Unite! Erasmus+ and the H2020 pilot phases. The alliance has in July been granted funding for the next 4 years. The activities of the Unite! H2020 pilot will be one of the main Dialogue topics, with the ambitious aim of bringing together the Alliance’s Education and Research&Innovation communities for the first time.

There are three open events at the core of the Dialogue:

  • the “Unite! present and future impact” roundtables involving external stakeholders;
  • the “Unite! common R&I agenda and action plan” roundtables, presenting the UNITE.H2020 strategy and ongoing joint pilot actions;
  • the roundtable on the perspectives of collaboration among Alliances related to the CLUSTER network, the cradle of Unite!.

In addition, the Dialogue will include the Presidents & Rectors’ Strategic Workshop and a series of Board meetings: The Governing Platform, the Steering Committee, the Unite! Students organization (SURE!), and the Academic Forum. The program is completed with Task Force and Work Package meetings as well as a Poster session.
