Stockholm University is part of CIVIS, a European Civic University formed by the alliance of several leading research higher education institutions across Europe:


Cooperation across national borders

The purpose of CIVIS is to facilitate cooperation across national borders and to increase the mobility of students, teachers and other staff. The alliance focuses on five global challenges:

  • Health
  • Cities and mobility
  • Climate, environment, energy
  • Digital and technological transformations
  • Society, cultures and heritage

The collaboration creates opportunities for research, teaching, cultural exchanges and citizen engagement from the Mediterranean to the Baltic, with connections to the whole world.

Co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union

The alliance is supported by the European Commission via the Erasmus + call "European Universities" which aims to increase collaboration between European universities and thereby increase the quality and attractiveness of higher education in Europe.
