Eleven leading European research universities have come together to create a unique alliance – Una Europa. Our universities have been educating Europe for over 1,000 years. Together, we teach over 500,000 students and count almost 100,000 university staff among our network, with digital learners numbering in the millions. Una Europa aims to draw on our collective strengths to create a truly European inter-university environment, a University of the Future.

We believe in a university that is...

1. not a place, but a body of knowledge, ideas, and values, evolving freely beyond borders, mediums and time.

Focus Areas

Una Europa’s six Focus Areas reflect pressing global and societal challenges. Inherently interdisciplinary, they are designed to bring together experts in a wide range of fields to find new ways of collaboratively conducting the research of the future and forging new paths in education and societal outreach.

Our strategy

The Una Europa 2030 Strategy is the culmination of a year-long consultation with our community of students, academics and professional staff to set our course for the future, together. Rooted in our Manifesto, this Strategy sharpens our collective focus on the opportunities and challenges that matter most as we move through the decade ahead.
