Founded in 1985, the Coimbra Group is an association of long-established European multidisciplinary universities of high international standard. The Coimbra Group is committed to creating special academic and cultural ties in order to promote, for the benefit of its members, internationalisation, academic collaboration, excellence in learning and research, and service to society. It is also the purpose of the Group to influence European educational policy and to develop best practice through mutual exchange of experience.

The Coimbra Group mainly functions through its Working Groups, which unite representatives from member universities around specific subjects. UNIGE's participation is coordinated by the International Relations Office (see contacts on the right); below is the list of UNIGE representatives by Working Group.
