CIVIS is a European Civic University formed by the alliance of eight leading research higher education institutions across Europe:

It brings together a community of more than 384,000 students and 55,000 staff members including 30,000 academics and researchers.

Rooted in their urban and regional landscape, our CIVIS member universities actively contribute to the social, cultural and economic dynamism of their ecosystem and promote European values such as inclusiveness, gender equality, non-discrimination and social equity. CIVIS will forge richer interactions and co-creation of knowledge and skills with citizens, schools, enterprises, social and cultural associations.

The involvement of our member universities in this alliance will help reduce inequalities, increase access to quality training and create real opportunities for success for all our students and staff.
