European Universities Week

Together towards a European Higher Education Area

We envision European Universities as the driving force to truly overcome political, administrative, educational, economic, societal, cultural, and language borders within for higher education and its relationship with businesses and society within the European Union and beyond. Overcoming these borders, particularly affecting the European cross-border regions is not achieved through standardization of higher education, but through being inclusive in every aspect, embracing diversity, multiculturalism, and multilingualism. The core of European University Alliances is standing and acting together while embracing the individuality, expertise, and unique contribution of each partner. They build joint capacity for state-of-the-art research and education by drawing an ever-growing number of connections between their administrations, researchers, students, programmes, laboratories, initiatives, and regions. With this dense web of interconnected structures and activities, they constitute a new—European—quality of universities with a shared identity.

European Universities Week

In the time frame of the “Day of Europe”, 9 May 2022, the German Exchange Service (DAAD) called out the “Week of European Universities” 5-12 May 2022. It seeks to to illustrate missions, visions, contents, contribution, and impact of European Universities within the European Higher Education Area. ​ Across gladly contributes.
