Aalto University: Unite! supports the manifesto for the future of universities in Europe

In the perspective of the Conference on the Future of Europe which took place this past January, students from Bachelor’s to PhD from all European universities were invited to design a manifesto. This Conference was designed to be an incubator for new proposals for shaping the university of tomorrow, involving national authorities, the European Commission and drawing in particular on the feedback from the 41 alliances set up under the “European Universities” initiative.

Because universities are at the forefront of innovation and host an increasing number of students and European citizens, they should be the leaders of global change in our common future. European students were the actors and writers of this manifesto, which is a public statement setting up an agenda for action. It compiles their interests for challenges ahead and their awareness that Europe and European alliances are the appropriate level to answer the key issues of our time.
