European Identities, Natural and Societal Sustainability, and Key Competences – Academic Year 2022/23

To tackle the challenges of the 21st century, interdisciplinary, student-centered and challenge-based learning should play a great role in educating the change-makers of the future. To give students the opportunity to gain an international and interdisciplinary perspective on Europe’s future challenges as part of European knowledge-creating teams, EPICUR is offering European Tracks, flexible learning pathways in which students put together their own curriculum of up to 30 ECTS credits centered around a real-world challenge set by an external stakeholder. 

EPICUR European Tracks are inspired by the tradition of Liberal Arts and Sciences education and comprise the EPIC Mission and additional learning ventures within one of the thematic challenge areas shown below. EPIC Missions are credit-bearing, interdisciplinary, challenge-based group projects in which students from across Europe come together to solve real-world problems for real-world stakeholders with the support of academic mission guides over the course of an academic year. Additional learning ventures include thematic courses in the challenge areas, key competence courses as well as potentially internships or service learning. Taken together, the EPIC Mission and additional learning ventures provide students with a unique opportunity to develop their individual competence portfolios based on their needs and interests. 

With this call for course proposals, we invite instructors at the EPICUR partner institutions to propose courses that would fit one of our two pilot themes, European Identities and Natural and Societal Sustainability, or focus on the acquisition of Key Competences (e.g., academic skills, interculturality, critical thinking) by 21 March 2022.

In case of any questions, please contact us by email at
For your convenience, you can download the call as Word or PDF document.
