The U4Society Network is an European University Network of Ghent University (BE), University of Göttingen (DE), University of Groningen (NL), University of Tartu (EE), and Uppsala University (SE). The partnership stands for a preferential, but not exclusive cooperation in European and International projects, for the development of joint initiatives in research and education, and for the organisation and promotion of staff and student exchange.
Through our network, we aim to broaden the partner universities' educational offer, facilitate and enhance the U4Society students' international experiences, strengthen the research output, and share knowledge and pooling resources within the field of university management.
In addition, we provide education based on the overarching European values and principles of human rights, openness, and democracy, actively promoting universities' rights to autonomy, academic freedom, and sustainability, as well as strongly advocating the notion of European citizens.
Our activities are organized within 5 thematic clusters
