No, you haven’t come to the wrong place. On 8 April, we launched a major redesign of the unu.edu website, with the aim of making it easier for you to find the information from and about UNU that you’re most interested in.
This website relaunch has been almost six months in the making, and has involved a great deal of work by the web development and content teams to build a site that reflects the vision of the UNU Rector, Konrad Osterwalder. The new website structure and content acknowledge UNU’s ongoing transition from primarily a research and capacity development institute to a fully-fledged postgraduate educational institution.
The new website is thus more “university-like” and showcases the latest UNU research through informative “articles”, including opinion pieces on topical international issues, written by UNU researchers. By subscribing to our events and news syndication feeds, you can keep up-to-date with upcoming seminars and conferences, and recent work from across the global UNU system. As well as links to all the institutes and programmes of the global UNU system, the new website provides easy access to the University’s academic programmes, faculty and publications.
For those who are interested in technical matters, the new unu.edu is built on opensource software (WordPress) and utilizes a custom-built thematic structure.
This new website is the first step in an ongoing process. You can expect to see numerous changes, improvements and additions over the coming weeks and months.
Please take some time to explore the new unu.edu, and let us know what you like (or don’t like). You can reach us at .
