What is the Manifesto?
A manifesto is a public statement setting up an agenda for action. Creative, daring, challenging, it promotes a cause; in our case, the necessity to figure out the university of the future and the way it can shape Europe to come and European alliances. The Manifesto presents the students’ ideas on the future of Higher Education in Europe, as well as some recommendations to make European universities more in line with their expectations.
By signing the Manifesto, you got the opportunity to support a consistent vision of how universities should look like in the future and helped to promote change!
The Manifesto on the Future of Universities in Europe benefits from the support of partner institutions. Please, click on our Institutional Support webpage to see who supports our Manifesto and backs the signing of it.

Why and how was the Manifesto written?
In the perspective of the Conference on the Future of Europe, students from Bachelor’s to PhD from all European universities were invited to design a manifesto. This Manifesto is the fruit of several months of discussions, meetings and cooperation between students from a fair number of European University Alliances. Students are the actors and writers of this manifesto, that can only make sense through their participation.
On January 25, 2022, the final version of the Manifesto on the Future of Universities in Europe was officially presented to the Former French Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, Mrs Frédérique Vidal, and the Commissioner for Education, Youth, Sports and Culture, Mrs Mariya Gabriel, during the Forum of Universities for the Future of Europe, at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie, in Paris, France.
