Ligue des universités de recherche européennes (LERU)
La Ligue des universités de recherche européennes (LERU) fondée en 2002 regroupe actuellement 21 membres, dont l’Université Paris-Sud. Elle a pour mission de promouvoir le rôle des universités de recherche dans le développement d'un enseignement supérieur de qualité en contact avec les limites de la connaissance, et d'une recherche fondamentale intensive, ouverte sur les enjeux économiques et sociétaux.
L'objectif de la LERU est de défendre ces valeurs, en influençant la politique européenne, par des analyses et des propositions concrètes qui pourront être reprises par la Commission ou le Parlement européen. A travers la coopération et l'échange d'expérience entre les 21 universités membres, la LERU promeut également le développement de "bonnes pratiques".

The research-intensive universities that are members of LERU have been able to form a unique bond over the past fifteen years and have succeeded in successfully advocating the interests of research-intensive universities in Europe and beyond. They are also keenly aware that, regardless of their location and other differentiating factors, all research universities in Europe face similar challenges affecting all aspects of their intertwined activities - education, research and societal engagement. There are similar challenges for universities, not only within the Western and Southern European quadrants, where LERU universities are located, but also in Central and Eastern Europe, with challenges differing more in intensity and in degree of development, than in fundamental characteristics. That is why a group of seven respected Central-European universities and LERU are joining forces.
