CIVICA: The European University of Social Sciences

CIVICA (The European University of Social Sciences) brings together ten leading European higher education institutions in the social sciences, humanities, business management and public policy, with a total of 72,000 students and 13,000 faculty members. Together, they build on an ever-stronger combination of teaching, research and innovation to mobilize and share knowledge as a public good and to facilitate civic responsibility in Europe and beyond.

CIVICA members strive to find solutions to complex societal challenges through a series of integrated activities focused on four thematic priorities: Societies in Transition and Crises of Earth; Democracy in the 2Ist Century; Europe Revisited; and Data Driven Technologies for the Social Sciences. CIVICA was selected in 2019 by the European Commission as one of the pilot European Universities, funded under the Erasmus+ programme.

CIVICA members are: Bocconi University (Italy), Central European University (Austria and Hungary), the European University Institute (Intergovernmental), the Hertie School (Germany), IE University (Spain), the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration (Romania), Sciences Po (France), SGH Warsaw School of Economics (Poland), the Stockholm School of Economics (Sweden) and The London School of Economics and Political Science (United Kingdom).
