A moment to get together, a moment to inspire and innovate, a moment to celebrate.

The CIVIS Days are CIVIS’ main annual event, gathering students, university staff, civil society, innovators, policymakers and local representatives from across Europe.

We come together to connect and cooperate to build the future of our Alliance, to share what we have learned and developed, and to find innovative solutions to societal challenges.

Each year a different CIVIS member university takes up the challenge of hosting, using the event as an opportunity to showcase CIVIS to their own community while positioning themselves at the heart of our Alliance.

CIVIS Day 2023 in Tübingen

In May 2023, CIVIS travelled to Germany to enjoy the hospitality of the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen.

For this year’s edition, Tübingen focused on three topics under the banner “Sustainably Connected Universities”:

  1. Celebrating the academic substance of the CIVIS Alliance 
  2. Exploring the realities of CIVIS as an Inter-University Space
  3. Underlining our commitment to sustainability 

The three-day event featured numerous workshops, seminars and meetings, organised around three main pillars:

  • Meetings for the governance and management bodies of the CIVIS Alliance
  • Workshops combining actors from different CIVIS bodies 
  • Public sessions open to external participants, both in person and online. The lectures and panel discussions during “CIVIS – a sustainably connected Alliance” showed how we are building our inter-university space with an eye for the future of our Alliance and the planet.
