The Fahrenheit Union of Universities in Gdańsk (FarU) was established upon the joint request of the Rectors of the Medical University of Gdańsk, Gdańsk University of Technology and the University of Gdańsk. The senates of the three leading universities of Pomerania adopted relevant resolutions and endorsed the wording of the Statutes specifying the range of responsibilities, the bodies and the way of managing that new organisation.
The most important task of FarU is the best possible use of the resources and potential of the three universities forming the Fahrenheit Universities. Its activities focus on the development of solutions supporting joint research and development work, as well as the recommendations pertaining to the consolidation or creation of new, intercollegiate doctoral schools.
The Medical University of Gdańsk, Gdańsk University of Technology and University of Gdańsk have been undertaking joint initiatives in the scientific, educational and organisational areas for many years. Owing to the creation of the Union of Universities, it is possible to enhance current cooperation and create in Pomerania one of the strongest academic centres in Poland.
