The European University Association (EUA) represents more than 850 universities and national rectors’ conferences in 48 European countries. EUA plays a crucial role in the Bologna Process and in influencing EU policies on higher education, research and innovation. Through continuous interaction with a range of other European and international organisations, EUA ensures that the independent voice of European universities is heard.
EUA provides unrivalled opportunities for members to share best practices by participating in projects, events and other mutual-learning activities involving a wide range of universities. The Association also provides members with unique opportunities to shape European policies and initiatives affecting higher education and research.
Universities in Europe and around the world are crucial to global sustainable development. Therefore, the Association supports the worldwide agenda for achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Universities contribute to the goals through research and education in a wide array of disciplines that can potentially contribute to a better future.
EUA supports its members in the achievement of the SDGs through advocacy and project work and serves as member of SDG Watch Europe. EUA also recognises the importance of the SDGs in its Strategic Plan.
