Since the founding of the European Union, researchers have observed scepticism or doubt about its institutions, policies, and values. Universities can play a fundamental role in embedding EU values in society. There is a need to build trust in the EU and its efficiency in addressing the concerns of its citizens. The "Emb-ED EU" project aims to support university teachers to integrate good practices and innovative methods in their teaching practice so that EU values can be taught as a transversal element in all types of courses and disciplines. The project will support academics to better understand the role of the EU, including its complexity and impact on peace and prosperity.

The consortium aims to deliver a framework for promoting the promotion of EU values in higher education teaching and learning. It also aims to create professional development opportunities for lecturers and academics on the role of the EU and their own role in transmitting EU values through their teaching practice.
