NEOLAiA (youth in Greek) is the alliance of young European Universities for digital natives, which stands for inclusion, gives personal and tailor-made answers, strengthens democracy and encourages their members to make a difference, becoming game-changers.
Most members of the European Union are living in small and medium-sized cities or in the countryside. So, as young universities with the power and commitment to reform, we are the most important drivers of innovation and social change, in our regions.
The NEOLAiA consortium is made up of nine universities: University of Nicosia (Cyprus), University of Ostrava (Czech Republic), Ștefan cel Mare University of Suceava (Romania), Bielefeld University (Germany), Šiauliai State University of Applied Sciences (Lithuania), Örebro University (Sweden), University of Salerno (Italy), University of Tours (France) and the University of Jaén (Spain), coordinator of the group. In total, these nine universities have more than 142,000 students and more than 10,000 international mobility students.
