The Young European Research Universities Network (YERUN) is a non-profit association that brings together young research-oriented universities in Europe. YERUN represents 18 universities from 12 EU countries. The network aims at strategic collaboration among young European universities to shape future education policies.

YERUN was launched in Dublin on April 30, 2015.
The network is run by the assembly of rectors, vice-chancellors or respective presidents of its member universities. The assembly elects an executive board that includes a president and a secretary. The current president is Juan Romo (Charles III University of Madrid).
