Innovation and Sustainability


The vision of INVEST is to create a modern European University satisfying needs and requirements of the new generation of Europeans as the leaders of introducing sustainable life in regions across the Europe. We see INVEST as fully functioning, innovative and bottom-up network of universities, achieving higher standards in education, training, research and innovation through international synergy and excellence taking greater responsibilities towards development of inclusive society and knowledge-based economy.

Future research activities will reflect the variety of fields of the research at partner universities, with an intention to achieve a complementarity between these fields, addressing the research and innovation missions of the new Horizon Europe initiative, namely adaptation to climate change including societal transformation, climate-neutral and smart cities, healthy oceans, seas, coastal and inland waters and soil health and food.
