Our Academic Alliance

All members of UNINOVIS are public Universities and have in common to serve public interest, and wish to offer European students, teachers, researchers, citizens, workers, companies, NGOs, public national and international institutions, a comprehensive academic network, aiming to establish a European University by the year 2027.

We have already built connections, joint teachings, research projects, mobilities, as members of the consortium are active in all academic fields, globally, teaching annually to more than 140,000 students, employing more than 14,000 teachers, researchers and administrative staff.

Existing double degrees, notably in data sciences, student and teacher mobilities, and innovative projects such as hybrid mutualized language classes, summer schools breeding science and culture, or an international hybrid degree in applied Hydrogen new technologies, are an existing solid basis upon which a leading alliance shall be built and strengthened in the years to come.

We represent Europe's diversity: Our academic offers are accessible in French, German, Italian, Finnish, Lithuanian, Spanish and Albanian, along with the practice of English as a common language; we value intercultural understanding and promote the learning of European languages and cultures within our institutions.

Each institution has its own goals, purposes, being the result of its history, internal and national considerations, interaction with networks in science and society. Through a European University Alliance, these objectives shall be strengthened, as they are all motivated by the will to serve public interest, knowledge, European scientific and cultural identity. We will to build a lasting cooperation, offer Europeans common scientific goals, in teaching and research, common academic institutions, ambitious projects, grounded upon our rich and cohesive diversity.
