EULER (short form, long form: The Euler-Franeker Memorial University Institute) is an independent academic institute formally established within EUCLID (Euclid University), an intergovernmental treaty-based organization with a university charter.
Legally, EULER was established in 2008 under the initial name of “EUROSTATE University Institute” (EUCLID Statutes Section XI) with a vision to focus on general-public students and European affairs.
“EUROSTATE University Institute” was renamed “EULER University Institute” in 2018 as part of the overall vision to charter a fully autonomous degree-granting institution (within the Kingdom of the Netherlands) in the longer term. This vision was fulfilled in 2023 with EULER receiving a full degree-granting charter from the Ministry of Education (Willemstad, Curacao, Kingdom of the Netherlands).
As of today, EULER functions as an independent academic institute formally established within EUCLID (Euclid University), thereby taking full advantage of EUCLID’s infrastructure and institutional recognition while maintaining its unique characteristics and vision.
