The Europaeum is an association of 10 leading European university institutions, designed to serve as an ‘international university without walls’, in which future scholars and leaders of our new Europe have an opportunity to share common learning and confront common concerns together.
As the pace of European integration accelerates, decision-makers, opinion-formers, politicians and citizens in European countries increasingly need to ‘think European’, to transcend national perspectives and empathise with a European mix of national and international cultures.
The Europaeum exists to foster collaborative research and teaching, to provide opportunities for scholars, leaders, academics and graduates, to stage conferences, summer schools and colloquia, and to enable leading figures from the worlds of business, politics and culture to take part in transnational and interdisciplinary dialogue with the world of scholarship.
Above all, the Europaeum aims to add to the sum knowledge about – and for – the new Europe, to help prepare the future citizens and leaders of – and for – Europe, to ensure that all partner universities are fully engaged in both explaining and making Europe’s future, and to leave all those involved in the Europaeum with an enlarged ‘sense of Europe’.
Universities associated in the Europaeum include – Oxford, Leiden, Bologna, Bonn, Paris I, Geneva (Graduate Institute of International Studies), Prague (Charles), Madrid (Complutense), Helsinki and Kraków (Jagiellonian).
