Who is CIVIS?

A network creating links across and beyond Europe

We, Aix Marseille Université (France), National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Greece),University of Bucharest (Romania), Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium), Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (Spain), Sapienza Università di Roma (Italia), Stockholms Universitet (Sweden), Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen (Germany) join forces to build a European Academic Alliance called "CIVIS".

This alliance, created under the statute of a European University meeting the criteria of the Erasmus + call of the European Commission, will bring together some 384,000 students and 55,000 staff members.

Oriented towards Mediterranean and Africa

The Mediterranean zone and Africa will be at the heart of our global strategy. We firmly believe that the future of Europe and that of Africa are intertwined. This is why CIVIS will affirm its vocation as a bridge between Europe, the Mediterranean and Africa, as part of a long-term commitment.

We clearly affirm our desire to create CIVIS.

We are committed to the long term in our project of European University. Depending on our respective faculty to contribute, and while respecting the independence of each partner university, we will ensure that the project has the human, material and financial resources necessary for its tangible implementation.

To this end, our governance bodies have approved the availability of € 2.5 million in total (in money and services) for this project; double what is requested by the European Union. What better proof of our motivation?
