U!REKA is the Urban Research and Education Knowledge Alliance and is a consortium made of six European Universities:

Edinburgh Napier University

Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands

Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, Germany

Metropolia University of Applied Sciences (Helsinki), Finland

Oslo Metropolian University, Oslo

University College Ghent, Belgium

Our institutions have been brought together around the shared themes of applied research, professional education, focus on our students’ future world of work and the professional development of our staff.  We are actively looking to develop active collaborations that benefit our students, staff and institutions.

With this in mind, this blog looks to provide colleagues with information on the alliance : an overview of existing projects, the possibilities it offers for collaboration, calls for papers or partnerships and so on.

We hope you find the information in this blog helpful. And thank you for your visit!
