Eight leading research universities have joined forces to create UNA Europa, a unique alliance aiming to create a truly inter-university environment. The UNA Europa partners are Universitá di Bologna, Freie Universität Berlin, University of Edinburgh, University of Helsinki, Uniwersytet Jagielloński w Krakowie, KU Leuven, Universidad Complutense de Madrid and Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. In June 2019, UNA Europa was selected by the European Commission to be among the first ‘European Universities’ pilots. The pilot collaborative focus areas of UNA Europa are European Studies, Cultural Heritage, Sustainability and Data Science & Artificial Intelligence.
The partners formally established UNA Europa as a non-profit association under Belgian law (asbl/vzw) on 1 February 2019 to ensure the success and sustainability of the alliance. The objectives of the association are inter alia to promote cooperation between the university partners, to create a culture of excellence in education and research and to contribute to the development of the European Higher Education Area and the European Research Area.
We are now seeking a Senior External Funding Officer to develop UNA Europa’s long-term strategy and associated activities.
