Our higher education community is international, and our community members come from over 80 countries.

Building a sustainable world together

We are creating solutions for climate change and the preservation of natural environments and fostering the prosperity and sustainability of societies. In line with our strategy, we are increasing the University’s international attractiveness and the retention of talents by investing in mobility, international recruiting and relocation services. We are a global community actively collaborating with our international partners to build a sustainable world together.

Our values are responsibility, openness, critical thinking, diversity, learner-centredness, courage and erudition. These values are reflected, among other things, in the way we appreciate different people, fields and traditions, promote opportunities for learning and development, challenge established truths and have a passion for tackling the world’s most wicked problems together.
