The Magna Charta of the European Universities is the final result of the proposal addressed from the University of Bologna in 1986 to the oldest European Universities. The idea of the Magna Charta was enthusiastically accepted. During a meeting in Bologna (June 1987) the delegates of 80 European Universities elected an eight members board. The aims of this document is to celebrate the deepest values of University traditions and to encourage strong bonds among European Universities. Having the Magna Charta Universitatum an universal inspiration, any third-country University has the opportunity to join it.
