Europe, understood as a supranational entity that has come a long way since 1957, when the European Economic Community was established, until 1 November 1993, with the Treaty of Maastricht and its current denomination, European Union, faces a new Challenge where the citizens are selected to be the authentic protagonists of the origin and the destiny of the unification. And because of this, it emphasizes the need for an identification with a Europe based on recognizable values, managed and assimilated by the citizens themselves; shared values, from the internationalization of education, to the most needy realities. From the competency paradigm and in the context of the knowledge society, the educational paradigm of lifelong learning, the European Dimension of Education (DEE) and of the concepts of citizenship and European identity, we believe that it would be necessary to add a new competence, which would add to the eight key competences. It would be a cohesive, linking competence, which we would call Europeanist competence. Through this research we obtain: a. A definition of the Europeanist competence from the conceptualization of the constituent factors that configure it and the three-dimensional indicators that compose it. b. A scientifically validated questionnaire that indicates the Europeanist competence in a person, and thus can measure the variation of this competence in its vital development. c. It has been concluded that the Erasmus experience has no influence in the acquisition and development of this new competence, the Europeanist competence.
