FORTHEM "Diversity and Migration"

In June 2019, the European Commission selected a total of 17 European higher education networks to rethink the European Higher Education Area with visions and bring it to life. One of these networks is the FORTHEM Alliance under the leadership of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU).




We are pleased that the second funding of the FORTHEM Alliance from 2022 to 2026 has been approved. In September 2022, Veronika Cummings assumed the task of coordinating the “Diversity and Migration” Lab at university level and, thereby, continues Gerhard Kruip’s (Social Ethics, JGU Mainz) successful coordinating activities during the first funding period. Furthermore, Veronika Cummings represents JGU as a Board Member in the Co-Creation Mission.

For further information on the activities of the Lab please visit this link.

The aim of FORTHEM is to improve the exchange and cooperation of students and lecturers, researchers and science support staff within the Alliance.

International cooperation partners of the Alliance are:

  • Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz in Germany
  • Université de Bourgogne in France
  • Uniwersytet Opolski in Poland
  • Universitat de València in Spain
  • Università degli Studi di Palermo in Italy
  • Latvijas Universitāte in Latvia
  • Jyväskylän yliopisto in Finland
  • Universitetet i Agder in Norway
  • Universitatea Lucian Blaga din Sibiu in Romania

In addition, cooperative alliances with non-university partners are scheduled at the individual university sites.

The Lab follows an inclusive approach and wants to encourage participation. We are looking forward to ideas, contributions to discussions or initiatives in the field of "Diversity and Migration"!
