We look forward to many participants!

Focus Semester on Quantum Information, Saarland University, Sept-Dec 2022

From 12 September until 9 December 2022, a Focus Semester on Quantum Information will take place at Saarland University. The aim is to study quantum information from the perspectives of physics, mathematics and computer science. We will have numerous international experts giving multidisciplinary lectures at Saarland University, accompanied by various research talks in seminars and colloquia. There is also a "Seminar: Women in Quantum Information". The lectures will be accessible for first year Master's students (physics, mathematics or computer science) providing an introduction to this modern field. However, also PhD students, postdocs and researchers are welcome to participate in the program. Here you get more information .

If you want to register (for participating or for receiving information), please send an email to: qitsemester(at)

In particular, the following T4EU activities will be possible, in case you are interested:

  • Hybrid lectures or research talks on quantum information. Note however that the program is mainly onsite only - we may have a small selection of lectures and talks in an hybrid format, but the vast majority of the program will only take place in person, in Saarbruecken.
  • Students and scientists from T4E partner universities are welcome to Saarbruecken. We have limited funding for free accommodation (for students), but we made a number of reservations for low prized accommodation on campus. There is the possibility to gain ECTS, see the above link.

“Transform4Europe” International Conference-Hackathon for INNO-METHODS

You can find all the information about the winners and the event in the press release on the "Transform4Europe" International Conference Hackathon for INNO-METHODS, which took place at the VMU from 24 to 27 October.


Press releases on the enlargement of the alliance

Transform4Europe welcomes two new partners into the alliance and demonstrates European solidarity with Ukraine. More information is available in this press release.


Solidarity with Ukraine and with Ukrainian universities

As a member of the European University Alliances, Transform4Europe condemns Russia's military invasion of Ukraine. We stand with the people of Ukraine who unequivocally oppose this war and we express our solidarity with the academic communities affected by Russia's military aggression. We urge our governments to implement all necessary measures to end the war in Ukraine and to re-establish peace. For further information, please read the statement issued by the alliance.

The University Board at Saarland University has also expressed its shock and concern at Russia's invasion of Ukraine: 'We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine and with our partner universities with whom we have collaborated closely over many years. We are deeply shocked at this blatant violation of fundamental European values, democracy and the rule of law. We want to provide aid and assistance wherever possible.' For more information and to learn about opportunities to help, please refer to the statement issued by Saarland University (available in German only).

In response to the current situation in Ukraine, the University of Silesia in Katowice has started a programme of activities designed to support the Ukrainian community and the large numbers of refugees who have fled to Poland. The university has set up a fundraising campaign that you are warmly invited to donate to if you can. Please note that you can switch the website language to English by clicking on the person icon.


Start-up Weekend

As part of WP5, our cooperation partners from Transform4Europe were invited to the Start-up Weekend! 3 students from the Estonian University of Arts and 3 students from the University of Trieste then flew to Saarland.

We are very pleased that 2/3 winning teams included students from the alliance:

  • 1st place: Up2Skill Up2Skill: knowledge exchange - between different generations to counteract depression and loneliness + donations for a school in Africa.
  • 1st place: Photos on demand
  • 2nd place: Laulu: Sustainable reusable tableware - inspired by the German bottle deposit system // 2 DE and 2 from EKA

The participants of the alliance were also successful in the special prizes:

  • Special Prize: SLUSH Ticket: Maria (student from Trieste).
  • Special Prize: EKA Design Prize: Photos on Demand

Statement from a participating student about the event:
There were relatively few people (about 50) at the Techstars Startup Weekend in Saarbrücken, which I think was great because the people who were there connected perfectly and even now, almost 2 weeks after the weekend, people are still posting daily in our group chats and I can see that everyone has become friends. During the weekend it didn't seem like we were separated from each other, but that even though we were in different teams and working on different ideas, we were still jumping from room to room asking how everyone was doing, offering help and asking for help as well. The Techstars Startup Weekend was great and I gained many new valuable connections, mindsets and ideas.
Harold Kiisler (Interior Design, BA, at EKA), pitched the idea and got 3rd prize with the project "Laulu".

Article in the online magazine 'DAAD Aktuell'

The DAAD online magazine spoke to Carola Hodyas, Strategic Partnerships Advisor in the International Relations Division at Saarland University and published an article about the new European University alliances. A European University alliance is a collaborative venture that transcends national borders, thus creating an inter-university campus. What roles do multilingualism and digitalization play? How does the alliance communicate and interact with the local public, stakeholders and regional authorities? Four representatives from the alliances 'NeurotechEU', 'Circle U.', 'EURECA-PRO' and 'Transform4Europe' talk about the practical realities of managing a European University alliance. For further information, please see the original article (in German only).

Recap T4EU Week in Katowice

A few days – is it enough to get to know each other better? We checked it during the first Transform4Europe Week. It was one of the events initiated by our European University. During this time there were meetings, conversations, workshops, shows and many other events so that we could learn more about each other.

The organiser of the pilot edition was the University of Silesia in Katowice. In May 2022 we hosted in Poland almost 300 people, including students, PhD students, as well as academic and non-academic staff representing each of the alliance’s universities.

Five days were filled with a rich offer of master classes, joint research projects, didactic classes, excursions, workshops and artistic events. We had a chance to learn different languages as part of the Languages for Lunch initiative. Afternoon meetings allowed us to get to know the local art and culture better. Concerts and thematic evenings were organized in cooperation with the Student Government at the University of Silesia. Evening attractions took place both in clubs and in outdoor locations. It is worth noting that Transform4Europe Week was also an online meeting prepared for the whole academic community of our European University.
