ENLIGHT consists of seven work packages to transform European higher education, develop globally engaged citizens and bring our network together in the following key areas:

WP 1 - Quality and Recognition Management

This work package focuses on the development of an ENLIGHT Quality Approach and ‘University System’ across the network to enable certification of ENLIGHT courses and degrees.

WP 2 – Challenge Based Education 

This Work package is centred on the creation of challenge based education modules across the network. Partner universities will both create and share modules related to the five flagship challenge areas of Equity, Climate, Health, Digitalisation and Energy. Students will work on challenges provided by the cities and regions in living labs. An ENLIGHT doctoral network will be established to share doctoral training across the network.

WP 3 – Global Engagement

This work package is creating a global engagement module to support the development of global citizens across the ENLIGHT Network. Work package 3 deliverables include the fostering of the key skills of multilingualism, diversity and leadership for all ENLIGHT students, an annual Teaching and Learning conference and Awards and the foundation of a teacher education network.

WP 4 – Connect

WP 5 - Outreach
