University, Culture & the City


The specificity of UNICA lies in the fact that its member universities are based in the capital cities of Europe: UNICA seeks to be a facilitator in strengthening the links and cooperation between the universities and the cities by collaborating with organizations like the Union of the Capitals of the European Union, organising conferences and seminars, and promoting good city-university practices.
