Towards a European University and a European LAS Bachelor Program


Eight Universities in six countries successfully joined forces as EPICUR (European Partnership for Innovative Campus Unifying Regions) for the groundbreaking EU "European Universities Initiative"  

EPICUR is a pilot for the European University of the future and seeks to explore new ways of sharing learning and teaching. Our focus is on innovative teaching and learning geared to the new generation of European citizens, to face the great societal challenges of the Europe of tomorrow.

At the heart of EPICUR's educational provision is the Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) tradition and a firm belief that students and teachers alike benefit from collaborative approaches.

These web pages document our work in progress and are intended as an invitation to be be EPICurious and join us on this adventure in collaborative international higher education!

Mapping Teaching & Learning Collaborations (curricular and co-curricular)

An important part of the Work Package 3 is scoping the EPICUR partners for potential collaborations in LAS-based teaching and learning. To this end, the Freiburg WP3 / EPICUR team has put together a Mapping EPICUR Collaborations (curricular and co-curricular) survey

Your participation in this survey enables WP3 to 

  • identify fitting existing offerings,
  • develop new courses and collaborations,
  • ensure recognition of EPICUR courses within existing programs of study, and
  • to connect stakeholders to develop Innovative Learning & Teaching Formats for EPICUR

Join us in this exciting endeavor of international, LAS-based teaching & learning collaboration!
