Fondazione CEUR (Bologna, Parma, Milan)

The Fondazione CEUR (European Centre for University and Research) was established in 1990 due to the will and dedication of university professors, entrepreneurs and professionals. Its legal status was acknowledged by ministerial decree in December 1991. The Foundation’s main goal is “to develop the cultural understanding of students within the field of university and research, above all through teaching and guidance given by the colleges and university residences, through encouraging research and scientific cooperation between young students and lecturers”(Art. 2 of the Statute).

Personal development should not be limited to the mere acquisition of notions or skills-albeit essential- but should also encourage an open-minded attitude towards the real world, faithful to the spirit of ethics and research. It is this very spirit that fuels the Foundation’s various initiatives which are organized so as to complement the students’ preparation and broaden their fields of interest and research in a culturally and scientifically open atmosphere.
