Be a Unitown Partner!

Unitown, an association founded by the University and the City of Ferrara, is open to the membership of universities and municipalities willing to define and develop their identities as university towns.

Unitown – The University cities network of excellence has been constituted as an association under Italian law. It is a private non-profit body with an internal democratic organization whose offices are elective and unpaid.

Applications for membership may be submitted by universities or equivalent institutions and municipalities with a democratically-elected government, sharing the purposes and the internal rules of the association.

The partnership of Unitown is offered to both the university (or universities) and the municipality of a university city willing to develop its specific identity. We also welcome memberships limited to the university (or universities) or municipality of a university city, since this will strengthen their efforts in promoting a broader responsiveness to shared visions of a developing university city as a whole.
