CIVIS - A European Civic University

The University of Tübingen has joined with eight other European institutions of higher education in the CIVIS – A European Civic University alliance. The partners aim to work together to boost international student exchanges, European civil society and cooperation with Africa and the Middle East. The aims of the participating universities are to tackle the big social challenges of the 21st century, to carry out relevant research, and to work responsibly and sustainably with an eye to the future. CIVIS is funded by the EU as a European University with the ERASMUS+ program.

Focus areas:

  • Health
  • Cities, territories and mobilities
  • Climate, environment and energy
  • Digital and technological transformation
  • Society, cultures and heritage

The work by CIVIS is not only intended to support European solidarity. The alliance is also concerned with cooperation with the Maghreb countries, the Middle East, and African countries south of the Sahara. The University of Tübingen has taken the lead within CIVIS to establish partnerships with universities in these regions.
