Ulysseus is an international, open-to-the-world, person-centered, and entrepreneurial University that will shape Europe’s future. We respond to the needs and demands of citizens by creating the Ulysseus Innovation Ecosystem that mixes knowledge, infrastructure and talent and ensures equality, diversity and sustainability as our underlying values.

Our name, Ulysseus, comes from merging Ulysses + EU. Ulysses is the hero of Homer's epic poem “The Odyssey”, which means a long trip involving many different and exciting activities while searching for something. Undeterred and audacious like Ulysses in his 10-year journey to Ithaca, our Alliance faces an ambitious endeavour that will contribute to shape the European Higher Education Area and the European Research Area, and hence the future of Europe.
