More than ever in this tragic moment, it is important to support all initiatives that value human integrity, respect for different cultures and sharing. These values have animated Universeum since its beginnings, bringing together, throughout Europe, without discrimination, diverse people driven by a common objective: to preserve and make accessible to as many people as possible university heritage and collections.

Beyond this common objective, our network also aims to build common resource and benefits through the production of knowledge, the sharing of good professional practices but also through benevolence and respect.

In the deeply concerning circumtances we are facing today, it is important that we continue our commitment as a European network and put forward our values.

In particular, we stand in solidarity with our valued colleagues in Ukraine, their families and friends, whose lives and livelihoods are in such terrible danger.
