The European Consortium on Applied Research and Professional Education (CARPE) is the first strategic alliance of its kind to be formed by a group of European Universities of Applied Sciences, and was launched in Utrecht in 2011. The partners aim to encourage cooperation in European research programmes and develop educational programmes jointly. The CARPE will also offer mutual exchanges for students and staff. An important focus for this collaboration is constituted by the links between education, research, businesses and organizations, through which knowledge can acquire both social and economic value.
CARPE Partners are: Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, Turku University of Applied Sciences, Universitat Politècnica de València, Manchester Metropolitan University and HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht.
