The European University Alliance is an innovative consortium including six leading universities from six countries – Spain, Italy, France, Belgium, Poland and Germany. Freie Universität Berlin, Università di Bologna, KU Leuven, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Uniwersytet Jagielloński w Krakowie and Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne are among the largest universities in their countries. They stand among the largest universities by their number of students - from 30.000 students to more than 85.000 students depending on the national higher education ecosystem. Located in major urban areas, the universities are all well connected between each other within the European space. This good connectivity will be a facilitator to existing relations and to new actions within the network.
