University of Glasgow joins European University alliance

International Edu News

The University of Glasgow has secured associate member status of CIVIS - a European University alliance. Amongst other shared objectives, CIVIS member universities aim to work together to boost international student exchanges, contribute to European civil society and increase cooperation with institutions in Africa. The alliance aims to tackle the big social challenges of the 21st century, to carry out relevant research, and to work responsibly and sustainably with an eye to the future.

The CIVIS Alliance is funded by the EU through the European University Initiative under the ERASMUS+ program and it focuses specifically on five thematic areas: health; cities, territories and mobilities; climate, environment and energy; digital and technological transformation; and society, cultures and heritage.

CIVIS is a European Civic University formed by the alliance of eight leading research higher education institutions across Europe - Aix-Marseille Université, France; National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece; Universitatea din București, Romania; Université libre de Bruxelles, Belgium; Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain; Sapienza Università di Roma, Italy; Stockholm University, Sweden and Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen, Germany.
