The European network of EUniverCities was launched in 2012 to bring together medium-sized cities and universities tandems. The network aims to exchange and disseminate knowledge, expertise, and experience on cooperation between cities and universities in urbanized Europe. EUniverCities are also a platform that increases the visibility of partner cities and universities in the international arena.

Network members learn from each other how to fruitfully shape city-university cooperation, use lessons learned, and take the next steps at local, regional and international levels.

The network was inspired by the EU2020 strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, which emphasises knowledge, innovation and technology.
