CIVIS was built by eight civic European universities on civic values such as inclusiveness
, social equity
with the purpose to assume its social responsibility towards the future generations for the benefit of the European community. All CIVIS member universities
are fueled with the mission to serve their local community and actively contribute to the social, cultural and economical dynamism of their ecosystem. The CIVIS alliance
aims to reinforce its civic identity and activity through collaboration at the European level.
As a European Civic University, we take the global health situation with COVID-19 very seriously. To face the Coronavirus disease, our CIVIS member universities have organised many initiatives and solidarity actions to better help our communities.
Many research projects are also being developed to fight the disease in the areas of epidemiology, development of diagnostics, treatment and vaccines, and infrastructures.
