Learning, Exchange, Research, and Innovation

Who we are

The TA3 (Trans-Atlantic Technology and Training Alliance) is a consortium of leading community and technical colleges in the U.S. and Europe that promotes learning and innovation across borders, supports regional economies, and promotes the value and importance of a global perspective.

What we do

The TA3’s mission is to support learning, innovation and exchange among institutions offering pre-baccalaureate technical education, to promote policies and research that support their ability to be effective leaders in regional economic development, and to disseminate lessons learned.

How to get involved

Members take advantage of TA3’s mission and opportunities by attending annual symposiums with cutting edge themes, collaborating on Trans-Atlantic project work and participating in learning and cultural exchange with other members in the network. If you’re interested in becoming a member, receiving the newsletter or attending an event, please contact our team.
