The City of Nijmegen has strong networks in Brussels and links with our German neighbours. The municipality is involved in various projects and networks with European cities. Roads, parks and squares are being given a facelift using European funds. We are working closely with our German neighbours on projects which include improving the accessibility of our city. Twinning has been arranged with towns in Europe to stimulate economic, social and cultural exchange. The whole population of Nijmegen is becoming more and more closely linked to Europe.
Radboud University’s goal is to become one of the top universities in Europe. It has already gone a long way towards achieving this, as we can see from the numerous European grants which have been awarded to its researchers.
The Heyendaal campus is becoming increasingly international: 23% of the academic staff at Radboud University now come from abroad. In addition, more and more foreign students are coming to study in Nijmegen. Radboud University also encourages its own students to gain experience within Europe. The university’s aim is for 50% of its students to spend some time in another country.
