Dear EUNIS Members, Friends and Visitors,

Welcome to the new EUNIS website, launched today. We hope you will like it and enjoy it; we believe it will meet your expectations. By changing the previous layout to a more service-oriented one, we wish to enhance the focus on our mission and on our offerings to the HEI community.

This website was designed and implemented in a very short time by a team from Umeå University lead by Johan Bergström and supported by the EUNIS marketing group. I would like to express my gratitude to all engaged in this important task.

Not all of the anticipated functionalities are already introduced and some information may be still missing — if you noticed any deficiencies, or have any suggestions, please do contact us at webmaster@eunis.org .
