Euro-Mediterranean University Institute EMUI



The Euro-Mediterranean University Institute (EMUI) was founded in collaboration with the Complutense University of Madrid host to our Spain Campus, and an EU, Maghreb and Middle East University Consortium. Officially launched in Malta on October 16th 2007, the events were hosted at the Mediterranean Conference Centre (Valletta), with institutional support from the Government of the Republic and the Embassy of Spain.

The Euro-Mediterranean University Institute (EMUI) arises in Spain as a Research University Institute of the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM). In cooperation with the homologue institutions in Malta and Fes (Morocco), the creation of the EMUI_UCM implies the consolidation of the Euro-Mediterranean Southern University. The Complutense Institute – EMUI was approved by the UCM Government Council on December the 16th, 2009.

The Autonomous Community of Madrid (CAM) has a broad scientific and research variety of programs with high quality, which are developed through the different higher education centers, attached in virtue of the corresponding State competences transferred. These circumstances and others such as geostrategic, political, social and economical considerations make it appropriate, Madrid to arise as a reference for excellence programs, multidisciplinary and convergent, covering those issues dealing with the building of the European model and the policies aimed at the guaranteeing of the success of the project. The offer of the CAM would be notably reinforced.

The projection and international cooperation at a scientific-cultural and academic-research level of the EMUI would reinforce the complementary projection and international cooperation at a political-institutional, socio-economical and business level. We would like to highlight that the EMUI becomes the first Spanish University Institution with specific competences, which necessarily have interdisciplinary character, referred to its purpose and goals.

EMUI has the following purpose and goals:

1.- To develop teaching and research quality programs focused on the European Union and its projection upon the Mediterranean Area.

2.- To form professionals in every area of punctual interest for European and Euro-Mediterranean institutions. These professionals will meet the standards of quality set by social, political and economic sectors involved.

3.- To offer programs of continuous education for updating knowledge and basic skills of the above referred professionals.

4.- To foster the spreading of results through specialized media. There will be also a presence in general media, according to the interests of their users.

5.- To draw up proposals of continuous education through courses, seminars or conferences that will be available to any citizen, with the purpose of guaranteeing accurate and critical information on the ongoing development of the EU, particularly in relation to Mediterranean issues.

6.- To advise public and private institutions on the aforementioned issues. Consultant panels will be set up to pursue this goal.

7.- To set up institutional teaching and research networks, with or without extra-communitarian partners, in order to improve the spreading of results. It will be also be a target to establish partnerships with other institutions in order to create local, regional or communitarian programs to be developed at the affected geopolitical areas.
