COMPASS Conference: Transferable Skills for Research & Innovation

Compass conference

The conference offers participants an international forum to tackle the key research and innovation challenges that are currently faced in the EU, and which are addressed by the Ulysseus Innovation Hubs. The conference will facilitate the cooperation of researchers and peers from all Ulysseus partner universities and beyond.

This conference is organised by Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences and will take place on October 4-5, 2023.


The Conference aims to bring together early-stage and experienced researchers to share their work affiliated with Ulysseus European University Innovation Hub topics:

  1. Sustainable energy, transport, mobility for smart cities

On the first day of the event participants will have the chance to present their work-in-progress projects or completed research papers, either in person or online. The scope of the research work is not restricted, and includes conceptual, empirical, and position papers.

The second day of the conference is dedicated to enhancing researchers’ transferable and complementary skills through engaging workshops, informative panels, and thought-provoking roundtable discussions. These sessions aim to equip participants with valuable tools, methodologies, and insights that extend beyond their specific research topics.

COMPASS is the flagship  for the Ulysseus R&I AGENDA.

Ulysseus is one of the 44 European Universities selected by the European Commission to become the universities of the future. Led by the University of Seville together with five other universities in Europe (the University of Genoa, Italy; Université Côte d’Azur, France; the Technical University of Košice, Slovakia; MCI | The Entrepreneurial School®, Austria; and Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences, Finland), the project will allow students, researchers and graduates to move freely between universities, carry out internships in companies and start high-impact research projects.

The two new partners, University of Münster and University of Montenegro, will become full members during the next funding period (2023-2027)
