EPICUR was selected in June 2019 to pilot a new way of intensifying collaboration among Higher Education institutions through the creation of a European University.
Our vision is that we want to create a university experience where together we will be preparing well-informed, open-minded and responsible European citizens capable of creating new knowledge and becoming drivers of transnational innovation. This means that the way we teach, we learn, we carry out research or develop innovation should embrace societal challenges, academic and technological developments and educational innovation.
Since November 2019, the teams in the 8 universities of the alliance are working together to test and experiment different approaches to make this vision a reality such as through multilingualism and safeguarding and strengthening European linguistic diversity, through student-centred learning and collaborative teaching formats inspired by a Liberal Arts and Science approach, through service-learning and research based internships closely connected to our regional eco-systems, and through imagining and facilitating new forms of mobility (physical, virtual, blended) available within an EPICUR inter-university campus.
Above all EPICUR encourages students, teachers, researchers and staff to cross borders, geographically, culturally and academically.
