The purpose of this study is to describe the educational development of the European strategic network of higher education institutions. The Consortium on Applied Research and Professional Education was established to promote the collaboration of five universities of applied sciences. The study analyses the learning and teaching modes using blended learning and innovation pedagogy and describes their usability in the strategic network of higher education institutions. The strategic network promotes student and staff exchange, conferences and joint research and development projects. There are also emerging joint educational programmes and ideas to expand the educational programmes to achieve joint degrees. The findings of this study are useful to those who aim to improve collaboration in international networks and strengthen institutional performance.
