The European University of Post-Industrial Cities (UNIC) consists of eight universities situated in different countries throughout Europe, representing eight different post-industrial cities.

All eight partners share the UNIC identity. We were established in times of, and have contributed to post-industrial transitions, such as the closing of the Opel Fabric in Bochum, the end of the Ford car plant in Cork, cutbacks of the Nokia Industry in Oulu or the rapid digitalization of the harbour in the world port city of Rotterdam, and other important social, economic and cultural transformations. The transition from manufacturing to services also leads to a broad range of social, economic, cultural and demographic transformations. Our post-industrial cities are the hotspots of such broader transformations in the social landscape of Europe. This includes transformations in the labour market and in (youth) employment, in migratory patterns and migration-related diversities, in old and new inequalities, in the impact of new technologies, in new health changes, etc.
