Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities
The Guild of European Research-Intensive Universities (also called The Guild) is a university network founded in 2016. It currently comprises nineteen of Europe’s most distinguished research-intensive universities in fourteen countries, and is dedicated to enhancing the voice of academic institutions, their researchers and their students .
One of the objectives of the Guild is to promote common positions on higher education and research, especially towards prestigious institutions. For example, in early 2018, the Guild produced a few reference and positioning documents on the FP9, the next Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development.
