About the new endeavour, Professor Mark Rogers, Acting President of UCD, said that “At a time when Ireland seeks to deepen its links with Europe and its institutions this represents a significant intensification of our European cooperation. I look forward to working with our alliance partners to create a European University of the Future.“
Alongside UCD, Universität Zürich (UZH), in Switzerland, has also joined UNA Europa. The two new members join other nine universities in the alliance, which includes UNICA members Freie Universität Berlin (Germany), the University of Edinburgh (United Kingdom), Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain), and the University of Helsinki (Finland).
