The Inter-University Centre Dubrovnik
IUC Dubrovnik is an independent centre for advanced study, grounded in and sustained by its international network of partner universities. The IUC maintains high scientific quality standards and provides an open space for critical thinking and innovation.
Building upon its location and its 50-year history, the IUC Dubrovnik serves as a bridge between regions within Europe and between the European region and the world by connecting scientific communities and connecting communities through science. The IUC Dubrovnik takes pride in bringing together scholars and students from different countries, cultures and academic disciplines to advanced research and higher education programmes. The IUC emphasises and supports inter-disciplinary and cross-national collaboration on global challenges such as human universal values and rights, health, education, poverty and climate, encouraging, in addition to east-west collaboration also, new north-south initiatives. The IUC Dubrovnik continues organising courses and conferences within the broad spectrum of scientific disciplines provided by scientific staff from multiple countries. The IUC Dubrovnik also stimulates the development of research activities, in particular, related to the courses and conferences within the programme and contributes to connecting leading international partner universities to regional academic institutions.
