Policy & Representation

EUA’s mission as the voice of Europe’s universities is to influence the outcomes of European level policy debates on issues that will have an impact both at national level on the work of national university associations and for the association’s individual member universities. Equally, EUA looks to support its members in understanding and responding to these developments in an ever-more complex and competitive global environment.

As the pan-European platform for universities, EUA is the key partner for policy makers at European level in the increasingly broad range of public policy domains in which universities have a role to play.

Based in Brussels as a non-governmental membership organisation EUA acts as an independent stakeholder for Europe’s Universities through:

  • representing universities’ interests through policy monitoring and influencing political processes and decisions at European level;
  • influencing public and governmental decisions through action at European level.

The key priorities for EUA are outlined in the organisation’s work programme. These include:

All of EUA’s policy positions and political declarations can be viewed on this page. A detailed description of EUA projects can also be found in the projects section.
