Besides partnering with single academic institutions, Ud’A is also a member of international university networks, which promote networking opportunities, best practices sharing and the enhancement of the visibility of European universities globally, to cite a few objectives.

Currently, Ud’A is a member of the following networks:

EUA provides its members with unique opportunities to shape European policies affecting the Higher Education sector and research, promoting innovation and encouraging European academic voices to come out and be heard.
