The Interregional Internationalisation Initiative University Network (3i Network) is a collaboration founded by the Ghent UniversityKU Leuven (KULAK), the University of Kent and the University of Lille

The main goal of the network is to bring together universities, regional governments and the private sector/civil society to work on challenges common to Flanders, Kent and the Hauts-de-France.

The founding universities are convinced that cooperation encourages innovation and creativity and can result in projects which benefit the population, businesses and other organisations in their respective regions.

To maximise impact and the full innovation potential of European ecosystems, experience shows that strong territorial innovation ecosystems based on excellence are essential.
