Erasmus University Rotterdam


'At home in the world'

The EUR is a research university with a pronounced social orientation in its education and research. Academics and students at our institution endeavour to solve global social challenges, drawing inspiration from the metropolis.

The spearheads of its research and education are:

  • Health: molecular-human-social
  • Wealth: sustainable economic growth
  • Governance: the organisation of companies and society
  • Culture: media, happiness and identity in the modern urban society

Important values associated with the EUR are ambition, a no-nonsense approach and an entrepreneurial spirit: it is a university of academics and practitioners, which supplies both people and knowledge for the boardrooms of national and international companies. With its deep roots in the community, the university faces the world with self-assurance and business acumen in the spirit of the philosophy espoused by Erasmus (and the motto of the current strategy) that “The entire world is your home
