Portorož, Slovenia, 9 June 2014. 9 June 2008 was the day of the inauguration of the Euro-Mediterranean University EMUNI, which was established with the signing of its Foundation Charter by EMUNI's partner institutions.
The Slovenian coast and Piran thus became a place where the countries of the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership came together to welcome one of the most important projects of the Union for the Mediterranean and a focal project of the Slovenian Presidency of the European Council.
This was acknowledged also with a high-level attendance of eminent guests, which included the then President of the European Commission, President of the European Parliament, Secretary-General of the League of Arab States and the Prime Minister of Slovenia.
The 6th year of EMUNI will be marked by the launch of EMUNI's first post-graduate Study Programme, while until now EMUNI has established a wide network of cooperating institutions and has rooted itself as an important Euro-Mediterranean institution, through its numerous short programmes, conferences, summer schools, modules and other activities.
