Abstract
Within the Europe of Knowledge, several university alliances have been established as an attempt to influence the development of policies in research and education. As such, these alliances can be seen as being new players in the increasingly complex multi-actor, multi-level web of governance in this policy area. The paper identifies two key university alliances in Europe, their positioning and their practices with respect to how they try to influence higher education and research policies, and discusses 1) the role university alliances may play in this process, and 2) their power and influence in shaping the Europe of Knowledge.
