CIVICA is the European University of Social Sciences. It is one of the pilot European Universities selected by the European Commission in June 2019 under the Erasmus+ Programme.
The eight CIVICA partners are Bocconi University, Central European University, the European University Institute, the Hertie School, the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration in Romania, Sciences Po Paris the Stockholm School of Economics, and the London School of Economics.
CIVICA aims to prepare the next generation of global Europeans towards understanding and contributing to an increasingly complex world. Its main goal is to generate awareness and to share beneficial knowledge with academics, policy makers, and practitioners in order to provide constructive solutions to the transnational challenges faced by citizens worldwide.
CIVICA focuses on four domains of research and cooperation: challenges to democracy in the 21st Century; societies in transition and crises of earth; Europe revisited; and data driven technologies for the social sciences.
