OpenU fosters European cooperation, innovation and sustainability in higher education by creating a European digital hub, called BLOOM, that provides a digital infrastructure for higher education policy experimentation in blended learning, mobility and networking.

OpenU project

Launched in February 2019, the Erasmus+ KA3 project "Online Pedagogical Resources for European Universities” (OpenU) project brings together representatives of ten European higher education institutions, six ministries of higher education and research, (France, Germany, Belgium, Latvia, Portugal, Spain), and four European networks around the topic of digitalisation in higher education.  

The project’s objective is to contribute to the emergence of innovative policies, encourage mutual learning and strengthen long-term strategic and structural cooperation between European higher education institutions. By creating the European digital hub BLOOM for higher education policy experimentation, it supports the development of European university alliances and the transferability of innovative practices.  

OpenU objectives


Create a European wide digital infrastructure called BLOOM, to link local softwares of universities and provide exchange and interconnectivity. Take a look at the BLOOM hub here.


Support policy-making, based on outcomes of the project to contribute to the emergence of innovative policies, and strengthen long-term strategic and structural cooperation. Consult previous High Level Authorities meeting here.
