Organisation

The members of EUF are public universities that share a culture of academic excellence.

Together we have been in the forefront of European policy making for over a decade, promoting high quality student mobility and a strong European Higher Education area.

The stakeholders of the European University Foundation are its members, who convene yearly at the General Assembly (also known as the Board of Directors meeting).

The General Assembly has the broadest powers to manage the Foundation’s activities and to undertake any acts in the interest and within the purpose of the Foundation (in accordance with article 8.1 of the EUF’s Charter).

Each member has one vote in the General Assembly. The President of the Club d’Europe is also a voting member of the General Assembly.

The General Assembly appoints the Steering Committee members, who work in close cooperation with the Secretary General in overseeing the functioning and development of the EUF. The current members of the Steering Committee (2015-2018) are:

  • Prof. Ariadni Stogiannidou, Vice-Rector of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
  • Prof. Ina Druviete, Vice-Rector of the University of Latvia
  • Prof. Maria Gravari-Barbas, Vice-President of the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne
  • Ms Marija Drinjakovic, International Relations Manager, University of Nice Sophia Antipolis

The Executive Manager of the EUF is Mr João Bacelar.

Cooperation among the members of the EUF is facilitated through the contact persons appointed in each university for the Coordinators workgroup and by the Secretariat team in Luxembourg.

Additionally, there is a network of project officers who are tasked with the preparation of joint EU project applications – together they form the EUF Project Incubator.
