We are an established European alliance of eight universities based in post-industrial cities, with superdiverse populations. We have a clear mission to boost mobility and inclusion for societal impact. The UNIC University is well placed to educate through teaching, research and community engagement, towards inclusive societies.
UNIC will bring a truly European collaborative structure of universities embedded in post-industrial cities, united by a clear ambition to promote social inclusion with a common commitment to create societal impact. We will foster a new generation of students who have the knowledge and the skills to create societal impact not just within their own university and city but on a European level.
