Welcome to the website of the Association for the European University for Volunteering (EUV).
EUV focuses on research linked to volunteering and the volunteer sector. It was first established in 1993 and is a travelling university, taking place every time in a different European city.
The aim is, on one hand, to map the current state of research on voluntary work, especially but not only in Europe and also to contribute to knowledge transfer and exchange between theory and practice.
Past conferences were held in Moscow (Russia) (2019), Strasbourg (France) (2016), Aachen (Germany) and Rolduc (The Netherlands) (2014), Basel, Switzerland (2011), Lucerne, Switzerland (2005), Freiburg, Germany (2001), Santiago de Compostela, Spain (1999), Lyon, France (1997), Barcelona, Spain (1995) and have brought together researchers, university professors, politicians, as well as practitioners from the social and volunteer sectors.
The EUV-Board attended the Word Festival of Youth and Students, 14th – 22nd October 2017 in Sochi, Russia. Main goal: For peace, Solidarity and social justice, we struggle against imperialism. Honoring our past, we build the future. Find more: https://grans.hse.ru/en/euv/.
