What is YUFE?

YUFE is a network of young and innovative universities in Europe. Our goal is the development of a European university, open to all, inclusive and participatory.

YUFE is mobility: the exchange between the partners of our network, i.e. students, teachers, researchers and all other members of the universities is fully supported.

YUFE is student-centred and multilingual: students are present in all YUFE committees and are centrally involved in all developments and decisions. On this basis YUFE designs a "Student and Staff Journey", career paths and partnership projects with local non-university stakeholders in four focus areas. Within the alliance language training is promoted at all levels.

YUFE is more than just a university: All YUFE universities are closely linked to the economy, politics and society in their regions. YUFE thus stands for close ties to the regions. All universities work together with companies, civil society organizations, local government and administration in order to bring the European idea to life.
