The Alliance of 4 Universities (A-4U) is a strategic partnership between four leading Spanish public universities: the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM)Carlos III University of Madrid (UC3M) and Pompeu Fabra University (UPF).

The association grew out of the desire of these four universities, which share the same commitment to quality research and excellence in teaching, to pursue joint projects, and to raise their international profile fostering collaborations in countries and areas considered to be strategic priorities.

The A4U receives support from the Spanish government through agreements with the Spanish Institute of Foreign Trade (ICEX) and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). It was an active participant in both the founding of YERUN, the Young European Research University Network, and the launch of the IUNE Observatory, whose work contributes to the knowledge and analysis of the research and technological activity carried out in the Spanish university system.

In order to facilitate the incipient cooperation and the management of the Erasmus+ ICM mobility funds for Namibia, and to give them the maximum added value, A-4U is organising a Virtual Namibian Partners’ Day on the 28 of October 2020 in which the following partner universities are invited to participate: University of Namibia (UNAM) y Namibia University of Science and Technology (NUST).

The event will include presentations by A-4U staff on the consortium itself and A-4U Erasmus+ programme, presentations by 1 representative of each guest institution, and themed sessions of interest for teaching and research collaboration projects.

The Virtual Day will be conducted in English.
