The Rectors’ Conference of the Universities of the Alps-Adriatic Region (hereafter «AARC») is constituted to promote transnational dialogue and cross-border cooperation in the fields of university education and scientific research, as well as to support teachers’ and students’ exchange and collaboration in all academic fields. Currently AARC counts more than 50 universities from Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Serbia and Slovenia.

AARC believes that harmonious coexistence and efficient collaboration constitute the characteristics and specificities of the cultural landscape of the Alps-Adriatic region and commits to strengthening cohesion of the European nations, as well as cooperation of Higher Education Institutions within and beyond the European Union.
