Universitas 21 is an international network of leading research-intensive universities, which was established in 1997. Collectively, its members enrol over 650,000 students, employ over 130,000 staff and have over 2 million alumni
The network's purpose is to facilitate collaboration and cooperation between the member universities and to create opportunities for them on a scale that none of them would be able to achieve operating independently or through traditional bilateral alliances.
The University of Edinburgh was a founder member of U21 and participates in a number of its activities, which are informed by core underlying principles:
|Jamie Tait||U21 - first point of contact||Jamie.Tait@ed.ac.uk|
|Sarah Smith||Universitas 21 Manager||University.Secretary@ed.ac.uk|
|Dorothy Watson||U21 Joint PhDs||Dorothy.Watson@ed.ac.uk|
