*The EU4Art Alliance is a collaborative project between the Hungarian University Of Fine Arts, the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts, the Art Academy of Latvia and the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome. The initiative was launched in November 2019, with The Hungarian University of Fine Arts acting as the project’s lead partner. The goal of EU4Art is to compare existing fine arts programmes and address challenges that come with developing a common curriculum for various fine arts disciplines. The project’s long term goal is to develop a unified international curriculum that would include practical and theoretical subjects in painting, sculpture and graphic arts at undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral levels. Such a curriculum would provide students the opportunity to carry out their studies at several universities in the European Union and to earn an internationally recognised diploma. Moreover, implementing this system would help raise the competitiveness of European universities. The EU4Art Alliance has been granted the mandate to foster an unprecedented level of institutionalised cooperation, thus ensuring that the project will be carried out in a systemic, structured and sustainable manner.
