OpenU is creating an innovative European hub called BLOOM to support blended learning, mobility and networking in higher education building on the strengths of existing solutions
Because of technological and structural changes, the education across Europe is rapidly changing. This rapid transformation in the education system will lead to creation of Universities of the Future that requires a much deeper level of cooperation between universities.
The European Commission aims at fostering excellence, innovation and inclusion in higher education across Europe, accelerating the transformation of higher education institutions into the universities of the future. In that aspect, the Commission supports:
to build inclusive and connected higher education systems, to ensure higher education institutions contribute to innovation and to support effective and efficient higher education systems.
In line with Commission’s vision, OpenU designed to create a European platform for blended and online learning, academic cooperation and virtual/blended mobility to be built on the strengths of existing solutions to foster the establishment of eU.university.
