Welcome to the EU-USR project


Comparative Research on University Social Responsibility in Europe and Development of a Community Reference Framework (EU-USR) Project was conceived as a response to the policy priority of the European Commission about the need for a common social responsibility strategy for all European universities. In this context, the EU-USR project creates a European model to enhance social responsibility of universities in a long-term perspective. To this end, the project uses a bottom-up approach which starts from some leading EU universities in the field of USR. EU-USR supports the achievement of a European Area of Higher Education by developing of a common European Framework for Universities Social Responsibility.
