Since its establishment in 2008, the Euro-Mediterranean University, one of the priority projects of the Union for the Mediterranean, has become an international institution, which gathers expert knowledge and experience of the Euro-Mediterranean countries and thus contributes in a significant way to the creation of a unified, integrated Euro-Mediterranean higher education and research area.
The EMUNI University is an international association of universities with headquarters in Slovenia. It represents one of the six projects of the Union of the Mediterranean, approved in the frame of a common declaration, adopted in Paris on 13 July 2009. Within the mission of the EMUNI University, the following goals shall be achieved:
The goal of the EMUNI University is to create specialised study programmes among the Euro-Mediterranean universities. The study programmes will cover themes and areas, which are significant for the Euro-Mediterranean Area. The study programmes or parts of them will be implemented at the EMUNI University as well as other universities, co-founders of the EMUNI University.
One of the main activities of the EMUNI University is also research, which is one of the important factors of development, success and quality of the University.
The basic mission of the University is to contribute with its activities to strengthening intercultural dialogue and to the priority goals of the Barcelona process, which is in the broader sense included also in the Union for the Mediterranean.
