EPICUR held its first Steering Committee meeting in Strasbourg, France, on 10th January 2020. The presidents and rectors of the partner universities signed their partnership agreement which sets out the Alliance’s commitments in terms of roles and responsibilities.

This signature confirms the support of the European Commission and strengthens the cooperation within the consortium to become an attractive, innovative European university, geared towards the new generation of European citizens, to face the great societal challenges of the Europe of tomorrow.

In a near future, not only EPICUR university will be connected but also their regions, taking full advantage of their respective existing networks. EPICUR will take care of involving staff and students in its construction and hence, in the governance bodies. It has been a key topic of the Steering Committee as well as the implication of associate partners.
