  • based on two key external factors: international evaluations and participation in international university consortia: AMU applied to be externally evaluated in 2019/2020 by the European University Association (EUA) under the Institutional Evaluation Program (IEP).
  • AMU is the member of EPICUR consortium (European Partnership for an Innovative Campus Unifying Regions) which participated in 2019 to the Status European University Call.

Karlsruher institut für technologie (Germany); 5. University of Haute‐Alsace (France); 6. University Bodenkultur Wien (Austria); 7. Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece). The top-priority mission of the EPICUR federation is promoting multilingualism as an instrument of fostering a deeper understanding of the multiculturalism of EU countries.

CS.6.2. Systematic expansion of the AMUR INSTITUTIONAL REPOSITORY.

The University’s AMUR institutional repository, a digital platform created to gather, disseminate, and promote the academic output of AMU staff and doctoral students, was launched on March 1, 2010. After AMUR was integrated into international repository catalogues, publications of staff and doctoral students (in particular doctoral and post-doctoral theses) became much more visible online, consequently increasing the impact our staff and doctoral students on the development of world science. Over the past 10 years, AMUR has been steadily climbing in The Ranking Web of Repositories—in 2017, it ranked 112th out of 2154 assessed repositories from around the world. In Poland, AMUR invariably tops the list of the best academic repositories.
