Vision of universities

Una Europa is an alliance of eight European universities.

By 2021, Una Europa will pilot its first truly joint Bachelor degrees. The Una Europa partners will build fully integrated curricula and jointly award the degrees. In practice, this means that on successful completion of their studies, students will receive one single degree document that is officially recognised by the countries in which the Una Europa partners are active.

The Una Europa Chairs initiative is one of key initiatives to attract talent from around the world to collaborate with us. By attracting outstanding academics from the Una Europa partners and beyond for visiting professorships, the Una Europa Chairs will further raise profile on a global scale, deepen activities and cement different kinds of mobility, within network and beyond. With the Una Europa Chairs, we would like to advance research, training and programme development in higher education by acting as bridge-builder between academia, civil society, local communities, researchers and enterprises.

With Joint Doctorate, we at Una Europa aim to go beyond previously tested models for European doctoral programmes. Joint Doctorate piloted in the field of Cultural Heritage is

  • a joint/ double European doctoral title recognized widely;
  • based on mandatory supervision of the doctoral candidate by professors from two Una Europa partner universities;
  • featuring obligatory stays at several Una Europa partners;
  • including Una Europa PhD Workshops as well as jointly offered courses and modules for soft (transversal) skills development;
  • administered by joint structures for admission, selection, supervision and assessment.

Una Europa 2030 – an interactive process to define Una Europa’s mission and vision for the next decade! Rectors made a start with an active discussion at the General Assembly. Now we turn to the Una Europa community at large!

European Higher Education Organization is a public organization carrying out academic, educational and information activities on higher education in Europe.

The EHEO general plan stresses that:

  • Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected.
  • The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders.

Thus, EHEO plans:

  • improve academic and scientific interaction of universities;
  • protect the interests of universities;
  • interact more closely with public authorities of European countries;
  • popularize European higher education in the world;
  • develop academic mobility;
  • seek funding for European universities.
