U4 Society Network


The U4Society Network is an European University Network of Ghent University (BE), University of Göttingen (DE), University of Groningen (NL), University of Tartu (EE), and Uppsala University (SE).


The first aim of the partnership is to provide a supportive platform for joint cooperative initiatives in the field of education, research and institutional management, as well as to offer a solid framework for cooperation as preferential partners in international projects and contexts.


The ambition of the U4Society Network is to strengthen the international position and visibility of the individual partner institutions through intensive cooperation.

The U4Society Network aims to broaden the partner universities' educational offer, facilitate and enhance the U4Society students' international experiences, strengthen the research output, and share knowledge and pooling resources within the field of university management.

It further seeks to provide education based on the overarching European values and principles of human rights, openness, and democracy, actively promoting universities' rights to autonomy, academic freedom, and sustainability, as well as strongly advocating the notion of European citizens.

From Groningen, Aletta, together with the partner universities of this network, promotes international collaborations in the field of research and education on the theme of health.
