Focus Areas

Thanks to the European University Alliance, eleven prestigious European universities - KU Leuven (Belgium), Freie Universität Berlin (Germany), Università di Bologna (Italy), Uniwersytet Jagielloński w Krakowie (Poland), Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain), University of Edinburgh (Scotland), Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (France), Helsingin Yliopisto (Finland), University College Dublin (Ireland), Universiteit Leiden (Netherlands), and Universität Zürich (Switzerland) - can finally speak with one voice at an international level.
This agreement signals a close alliance that will open new horizons for higher education and scientific research, and may lead to a truly European university.

Thirty years since the Magna Charta Universitatum and two decades after the Bologna Declaration, a new ‘European ambition’ is springing forth from universities, the guardians of European values and the nurturers of tomorrow's talent. This initiative encourages the structural development of the European Higher Education Area and the European Research Area, establishing long-term, sustainable, solid and dynamic relationships.

The goal of the Una Europa alliance is to create the European university of the future, where students can attend integrated courses in different countries and languages, and university staff and academics will be able to move freely among multiple locations, according to their professional needs. The partner institutions of this network are ready to collaborate with national, European and international organizations on the ideas, policies and choices that will shape the future of education and research. The ultimate objective is for the innovative combined formats of education and mobility developed by Una Europa to become a point of reference for universities all over the world.

Focus Area
On the basis of their mission and values, the Una Europa partners have selected five Focus Areas to launch their collaboration. Each fosters multi-disciplinarity and includes most of the studies offered at our universities. The Focus Areas act as initial thematic “glue” that ties our universities together in our mission to create a virtual campus.
