Nicolaus Copernicus University (UMK) in Toruń is the first Polish university to join the Young European Research Universities Network (YERUN) association. Together with 22 other universities from across Europe, it will participate in shaping European policies on research, innovation and education.
The YERUN network was established in 2016 as an association of young European universities with similar goals and values, such as openness, responsibility and inclusivity. The association’s core mission is to shape a higher education environment in which young universities have a real impact on its role and character.
“Welcoming Nicolaus Copernicus University to YERUN is a historic step for our community. UMK is a strong and competitive partner that has set the bar for research excellence in Poland very high”, says YERUN Secretary General Silvia Gomez Recio.
