And the name is..
We are proud to announce our alliance name and logo: Circle U.
We have chosen a name and logo that put the student center stage, encircled by seven closely linked universities. The logo includes the colours of the seven universities in the alliance (red/blue). The shapes are arranged in a dynamic and inclusive design that reflects the core values of the alliance.
The alliance’s ambition is to create a truly inter-European campus with the student being the point with a circumference of universities around them. This corresponds with the definition of the circle given by Euclid in Elements, Book I. The circle is "a plane figure bounded by one line, and such that all right lines drawn from a certain point within it to the bounding line, are equal. The bounding line is called its circumference and the point, its centre."
The alliance partners are: Aarhus University, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, King's College London, UCLouvain, University of Belgrade, University of Oslo and Université de Paris.
