UNITA - Universitas Montium



UNITA - Universitas Montium is one of the 50 European Alliances funded by the European
Commission within the framework of the Erasmus+ European Universities initiative.
The University of Turin, unique in Italy, coordinates this ambitious project, which involves from November
2023 12 European Universities in 7 countries and aims to have a transformative impact on teaching and
research, as well as on the relationships between the university and the territory, with the purpose of
proposing excellent, student-centered education from a European and transnational perspective.
Launched in 2020 with a 10-year development horizon, one of the main objectives of the project is to
create an inter-university, transnational ‘campus’ which promotes student, teaching and administrative
staff mobility as a vehicle for international and intercultural education within the European Higher
Education Area.



In addition to mobility opportunities within the Alliance, UNITA provides researchers and doctoral students with access to a wide network of research opportunities, particularly but not exclusively related to the three thematic axes of the Alliance:

  • cultural heritage
  • circular economy
  • renewable energies

International mobility opportunities within the UNITA project

A new mobility format envisaged by the Erasmus+ 2021-2027 programme, consisting of a blended mobility involving at least three Alliance Universities. The mobility will take place in virtual and face-to-face mode, according to a schedule defined by the exchange contacts from time to time. To participate, you must respond to a call for applications available on the dedicated page.

UNITA publishes yearly a catalogue of courses offered by the Alliance universities in virtual mode. This form of mobility, which is recognised in a student's career by the conclusion of a learning agreement, is designed to explore teaching at a distance in another European University, to gain an international experience that could prepare for a physical mobility project, to broaden one's educational curriculum through activities that are not offered at the home university. To apply, you must respond to a call for applications available on the dedicated page.

An innovative form of short-term mobility, involving a training placement in rural or mountain areas within the territories of the partner universities. The destinations planned for each year are available on the dedicated page.

Collaborative Online International Learning involves an integrated mobility experience within a standard course and virtual co-presence of teachers and students from participating universities.

Internship opportunities in research institutions and companies located in the territories of UNITA universities. See the catalogue of proposals and related details.
Additional exchange and mobility opportunities for students, faculty and administrative staff are regularly posted on the UNITA-Universitas Montium website.
