A network of eighteen leading European Universities connecting students across disciplines, cultures and countries

The Europaeum is a ‘university without walls’. Students from the member universities come together in multidisciplinary groups to discuss European issues and to problem-solve in the interests of Europe. Working with its members and with external bodies ranging from the European Parliament to multiple NGOs, its events take places across Europe. Significant public events are also organised from time to time.

Core Events & Activities

The Europaeum organises workshops, seminars and debates. Many are open to any student from a member university; some just to those whose main focus of study lies in the Humanities or the Social Sciences.

Scholars Programme

Our flagship programme is a two-year policy and leadership course for a select few of the brightest doctoral students within the Europaeum network. Taken alongside a doctorate, it has eight modules, including seminars with leading academics and practitioners, professional skills training, and significant team activity (multidisciplinary groups work on how to “make Europe a better place”).

Alumni Programme

Any student who is or was at one our universities and who has been admitted to (and subsequently attended) a Europaeum event (or joint degree/bursary) may join our Alumni network, either via our online database or via our LinkedIn group.

Our mission

The Europaeum’s mission is to create a morally aware cadre of young people who have developed the professional skills and the moral qualities to lead, learned how to work collaboratively and who are committed to shaping the future of Europe for the better.

Our people

Meet everyone invested in making the Europaeum successful: the Europaeum Team, the Board of Trustees, Members in the Network, Benefactors, Europaeum Scholars and Teaching Fellows.

Today, we need more not less international collaboration, more not less emphasis on universities engaging with the wider society, and more not less connection between the disciplines.
