Since July 2022, the University of Münster has been a member of Ulysseus, one of currently 50 European universities funded by the European Commission and the EU as part of Erasmus+.

The network consists of a total of eight partners: Universidad de Sevilla (Spanien), Université Côte d'Azur (Frankreich), Università degli Studi di Genova (Italien), Technická univerzita v Košiciach (Slowakei), Fachhochschule Haaga-Helia (Finnland), MCI® Management Center Innsbruck (Österreich) and the Universität Montenegro.

The vision of Ulysseus is to develop an excellent European university based on the European values of social cohesion and respect for human rights. The alliance firmly believes that European universities should be open to the world, institutions of solidarity beyond European borders.

Ulysseus aims to

  1. modernise our universities
  2. contribute to the development of our regions and cities.
  3. reduce the skills gap.
  4. to strengthen the communication and implementation of European values.
  5. to promote a university model that is open to the world.
