Student Involvement


EPICUR features a student-centred approach, inviting students to a co-creation process on all levels of the project – from course development to modelling an inclusive governance structure. Next to the EPICUR Student Board, each partner organizes student involvement on a local level.

Local student involvement in Freiburg

In Freiburg, students are involved on various levels: Student representatives work alongside EPICUR staff in developing and delivering the activities of the alliance. This task is currently carried out by Phillip, a master's student in Physics and Gender Studies, and Mathias, a Liberal Arts and Sciences student at University College Freiburg. They are also the current Freiburg members of the EPICUR Student Board and would love you to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to get involved: 

EPICUR Think Tank

In addition to student representation in daily EPICUR business, the Freiburg team organizes events in order to include as much student input as possible. This was kicked off by a two-day student think tank on 29 & 30 September where students acted as the expert group in tackling issues the EPICUR team are currently working on. The think tanks presented their work to EPICUR staff who disseminated the results further among colleagues at different partners. The event was a huge success and we plan to organize a think tank every semester break.

EPICUR Student Task Force Freiburg

To add to its local student involvement, the EPICUR team in Freiburg established a student task force – a space where students can exchange and discuss their views, wishes, ideas, and demands for a European University. Students can thus actively incorporate their ideas into the project that, as a young project, offers many opportunities for student contributions! To this end, we want to meet about once a month for roughly an hour. The first student task force meeting took place on November 17 and dealt with EPICUR in general and the current course catalog/offer.

The meetings take place once a month, usually on a Tuesday at 5 pm (c.t.) and last roughly one hour. New members are always very welcome to join. For capacity planning, we kindly ask you to register by clicking on the link below. We will then send you the invitation to the meeting with the meeting link. The meetings will partly be held in English, but with the possibility to participate in the discussion with German contributions. 

Get involved in creating one of the first European Universities!
