This paper is to submit a model of university development through strategic alliances among universities in three regions, namely Vietcalom, Indotim, and Philiplands. In order to implement the strategic alliances as mentioned above, it needs a region as a center of the strategic alliances, namely European Union countries. The central region is hosted by Belgium as a hub which has a role to manage the relevant alliance among regions and to share its funding. For instance, the VLIR (Vlaamse Interuniversitaire Raad) and / or the CIUF (Cooperation Interuniversitaire Francophone) in Belgium are the organizations that have role as above mentioned. Belgium is selected as it is a founding member of the European Union and hosts its headquarters in Brussels which is the heart of the Europe Union countries. The paper develops a model in optimizing the potentiality in building the alliances among universities located in those regions. A literature review was carried out on strategic alliances and supporting factors. The paper discusses a conceptualization that allowing common theme which to be identified to implement the model. The paper argues that there is a lack of integrative frameworks for the alliances among the three regions particularly in optimizing the potentiality of the programs.
