Our collaboration is firmly based on expertise in innovative education, research, and knowledge exchange. We pride ourselves on being entrepreneurial, and on maintaining an innovative culture in our institutions, as well as providing a catalytic role for innovation in society.
We are ECIU, the European Consortium of Innovative Universities, a network of 13 universities united since 1997 by a common profile of shared beliefs, interests, and mutual trust.
Together, we will create, test and evaluate a whole new educational pedagogy. This will help to focus all the university activities from education, research, administration and support through to innovation and valorisation.
The ECIU University is an EU-funded European University that will create a completely new educational model on a European scale. The ECIU University gathers together learners, teachers, and researchers to cooperate with cities and businesses and solve real-life challenges.
Based on the UN SDGs
The first three year phase of the ECIU University focuses on the UN Sustainable Development Goal 11 "Sustainable cities and communities”.
