UNIMED Study Center “Franco Rizzi”

UNIMED is glad to announce the relaunching of the UNIMED Study Center “Franco Rizzi”, an independent non-governmental global network of university research centres from all over the Mediterranean region.

Founded in 2015 by prof. Franco Rizzi, former Secretary General and Founder of UNIMED- Mediterranean Universities Union, the mission of the UNIMED Study Center is to promote shared research in the Mediterranean by relying on its unique network of Mediterranean-based Higher Education Institutions and on its strong connection with UNIMED Sub-Networks.

Following the vision of its founder, the UNIMED Study Center supports UNIMED accomplishments and provides relevant insights to back decision-makers and civil society activities, with a particular focus on fostering Social Sciences and Humanities cooperation.

The research lines identified for 2018-2020 are:

Migration, Higher Education in Crisis Contexts, Governance, Climate Change, Forced Displacement, Terrorism and Radicalization.

Fostering common academic cooperation and bringing academic results to the attention of the society at large are the main tools for contributing to building a more peaceful region.

Stay tuned for all the activities on the page dedicated.
