University Mergers in Europe

EUA Briefing

University mergers are a widely spread phenomenon in Europe. This briefing analyses the features of close to 130 cases of university mergers and clusters (since 2000) recorded in the EUA University Merger Tool, and identifies different patterns across the continent.


Merger and concentration activity takes various forms and has evolved across the period; it is given renewed attention in a context of consolidation of the higher education landscape as well as in light of new modes of inter-institutional collaboration.
