The Europaeum, a network to which UPF belongs, receives the prestigious Scaliger Medal
It is a collective recognition of the mission and actions undertaken jointly by all members of the Europaeum, a network of eighteen European universities.
Leiden University (Netherlands) has decided to award the prestigious Scaliger Medal to the Europaeum, a network consisting of eighteen European universities, including UPF. The award ceremony is to take place this afternoon, at 4.15 pm, and can be followed live via the university website.
The Scaliger Medal is a collective recognition of the mission and actions undertaken jointly by all members of the Europaeum. It also ushers in the network’s 30th anniversary celebration, which will take place in 2022.
The highlights of the various actions of the Europaeum include the Erasmus Mundus joint master’s degrees organized by various members of the network, and the Europaeum Scholars programme, a postgraduate school for a select number of doctoral students in the network to bring them closer to various European universities. The network brings together young and leading researchers to discuss important events in Europe; it is also committed to pan-European thought and organizes international conferences and colloquia.
Students from the member universities come together in multidisciplinary groups to discuss European issues and to problem-solve in the interests of Europe. Working with its members and with external bodies ranging from the European Parliament to multiple NGOs, its events take places across Europe. Significant public events are also organized from time to time.
