About the ECIU University
The ECIU University flips around the concept of a university, by offering fully demand-driven, interdisciplinary and flexible education, tailored to the needs of society. ECIU will establish a ground-breaking and innovative educational model on a European scale, changing the way of delivering education from degree-based to challenge-based.
ECIU (European Consortium of Innovative Universities, founded in 1997) is a selected group of 14 entrepreneurial universities that have a strong commitment to innovation and entrepreneurship and are the drivers of the development and innovation agenda of their region. Many of the ECIU institutions come from regions where the economy came under pressure following the decline of traditional sectors such as textiles and shipping. Therefore, all partners have very close ties to their region and the industry. ECIU member institutions are experts in regional collaborations.
