CIVICA gets greenlight from the European Commission: the university alliance continues its expansion

IE University and the SGH Warsaw School of Economics will formally join the leading alliance of European Universities of Social Sciences in October.

CIVICA – The European University of Social Sciences is one of the sixteen European university alliances to receive continued support from the 2022-2027 Erasmus+ programme, as the European Commission announced this week.

After a three-year pilot phase, this achievement sets the stage to establish CIVICA as an integrated deep and fully-fledged European university alliance in the social sciences, now bringing together ten world-renowned higher education institutions across Europe. During this new phase, CIVICA aims to develop a joint vision for 2030 with respect to priorities on education, research, innovation and service to society.

With a total budget of 272 million euros, the European Commission launched the 2022 Erasmus+ European Universities call to facilitate the full roll-out of the European Universities initiative. The CIVICA alliance outlined an ambitious set of actions for the future in a strategic proposal submitted last March.
