On September 15-16, 2011 a significant event for our University took place. This event became an important step on our path to integration into the European University Community. The XXIII anniversary of the Magna Charta Observatory foundation was celebrated on those days.
The Magna Charta of the European Universities became a finalising event of the proposal addressed by the University of Bologna, in 1986, to the oldest European Universities. The idea of the Magna Charta was enthusiastically accepted. During the meeting in Bologna (June 1987) the delegates of 80 European Universities elected an eight members board. The document drafted in Barcelona in January 1988 was signed by all Rectors present in Bologna to celebrate the 900th Anniversary of the Alma Mater.
It is important to note that this initiative appeared in the very heart of the university community itself, and the aim of this document is to maintain and preserve the deepest values of University traditions and to encourage strong bonds among European Universities. Although born in Europe by European Universities and having a major inprint of the European values in itself, the Magna Charta has an universal inspiration and any extraeuropean University has the possibility to join it.
NUFT sent the Application for signing the Magna Charta Universitatum in October 2010. The Observatory Council had examined our request and invited our Rector to sign the Document at a Ceremony being yearly organized in September and to take part in the Conference.
On September 16, 2011 the Ceremony of signing took place. It has been staged in the closed accordance to the University Meetings canons which were worked out through the 10 centuries. The Rector of the Bologna University Prof. Ivano Dionigi, professors-Senate members, honorable invited guests, among them Prof. Romano Prodi, Former Prime Minister of Italy and Former Head of the European Commission proceeded to the Great Senate Hall of the University.
