Europe’s Universities Shaping the Future

EUA Strategic Plan

The need for strong universities has never been greater in addressing societal challenges. The Covid-19 pandemic, climate change, resource scarcity, ageing populations, migration and managing artificial intelligence are among the many examples of areas where universities have a major impact.


The need for bold, cohesive, collective action across European universities is unprecedented. EUA has a key role to play as the major forum for pan-European university decision making, as a platform for sharing university institutional best practices, and as the voice of the sector in influencing public policy and opinion.

In this new strategic plan, EUA presents an outline of its vision, values, goals, priorities and working methods. This document was produced through extensive consultation with members, external stakeholders and staff. It will inform the development of annual operational plans that will set out concrete actions and ensure relevance in the face of rapidly changing circumstances.
