UNICA & the City
One of the particularities of the UNICA network is the fact that all members are based in the capital cities of Europe. The UNICA & the City Working Group focuses precisely on the relation between the institutions and the urban ecosystem with which they interact. The group was created with the mindset that universities are leading players in societal impact, shaping processes in the employment panorama, sustainable development goals, innovation practices, and governance and public policy affairs, among others.
Hence, the working group seeks to be a facilitator in strengthening the links and cooperation between the universities and other organisms in the urban system. This translates into collaborative endeavors with other stakeholders, organisation of conferences and seminars focused on pressing urban challenges, promotion of good city-university practices, and engagement with urban development initiatives.
Join now the UNICA & the City LinkedIn Group to exchange ideas, articles and events among the UNICA member universities.
We would like to kindly invite you to fill this UNICA & the City internal survey!
In the survey, we are interested to know details about Your vision for activities that the UNICA & the City working group could implement in the forthcoming years as well as Your experience in the field of City-University collaboration. This effort in collecting Your opinions and experiences will enable us to propose a framework for our future collaboration, activities, events and possibly also applications regarding external funding.
