Founded in 1991, in the aftermath of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the network has grown over the years counting today more than 100 members coming from all over the Mediterranean Region and beyond. Through the many initiatives carried out over 30 years, UNIMED has promoted the collaboration between universities of the Mediterranean becoming a point of reference of the international university cooperation.

Vision and Mission

UNIMED  strives to be a dynamic network that combines the resources of its members in mutual support, so as to benefit our communities on a local, national, regional, and global scale. Its mission is to facilitate international academic and research cooperation in order to enhance the scientific, cultural, social, and economic development of the region. 

Priority Areas

UNIMED works on several topics as many as the Universities and regional priorities are. It carries on projects in different fields, ranging from governance issues at the University level to integration of refugees, as well as sustainable development, digitalisation, employability and intercultural dialogue promoting mobility in the Euro-Mediterranean Region.

Besides, it keeps a strong dialogue with Academic experts in the framework of its thematic SubNetworks and with its institutional partners. All its activities aim at contributing to the scientific, cultural, social and economic cooperation.
