Dear Friends,


My warmest welcome to all participants of the European Universities Championships 2023.


The European Universities Championships, as previous editions have proved, are a wonderful occasion to be together and experience the beauty of university sport. I am pleased that a great number of students and officials, sharing their love for sport, respecting Fair Play, competing in truly university sport spirit will meet in many cities across the Europe.


During such events we do more than just sport – we broaden our horizons, get to know other cultures, we promote a healthy society, we stand on the side of peace, respecting and celebrating diversity.


Being the Organizer of the Championship is challenging but at the end rewarding as well. I want to express my appreciation to the Organizing Committees, its Partners and the volunteers who give their crucial contribution to the success of the event. My gratitude extends to the National, Regional and Local Authorities for their auspices of this event.


I believe that the European Universities Championships will bring the participants unforgettable experiences and lots of personal achievements. I hope all of you will enjoy your time, and life-long friendships between European Students will be legacy of all the events.


With wishes of good luck, I welcome you on behalf of EUSA to the European Universities Championships 2023!

Dear Students and Colleagues,


It is my great pleasure to greet you on behalf of the University of Montenegro, and invite you to join us at the European Universities Handball Championship to be held in Podgorica, Montenegro in July 2023.

The University of Montenegro, as the largest and the only public university in Montenegro, strongly advocates and supports healthy lifestyles and environment protection, through our study programs and courses, through investments into the creation of green environment within our campuses, and support to our student sports organizations. 

Despite being a small country, in its long-lasting tradition Montenegro always paid special attention to development of sports, and can be proud of significant success achieved in individual and team sports, which promoted our country in the best possible manner. Thus, the decision to be the host of this Championship was highly welcomed and appreciated.

Montenegro, the land of sea and mountains, provides an exquisite environment for organization of sports events. And in spare time, you can see the deepest river canyon in Europe, the largest lake in the Balkans, and one of the three last primeval forests in Europe.

We are certain that you will enjoy the championship, but also the splendors of our country and hospitality of our people.     

Welcome to Montenegro!



Prof. Dr. Vladimir Božović
