About us

The six partners of EDUC create a truly integrated European University with students, researchers and administrative staff who learn, impart and work at universities differing in size, age, native languages and focus.

Using modern digital tools and face-to-face collaboration, we form a strong triangle of shared knowledge and academic values between Western, Central and Southern Europe, developing strong ties between local environments to tackle global challenges of the 21st century.

What we do

EDUC offers a wide range of opportunities to everyone from the universities involved, corporate, business and research partners, local communities, alumni, lifelong learners and many more. Find out what EDUC’s key action areas are!

German, Czech, Italian, French, and Hungarian students are taking part in the program organized by the University of Pécs, Hungary, on the topic of the culture of ecological responsibility.

Thirty students from 6 EDUC universities have enrolled in the ‘Social Work and Social Ecology’ blended mobility program launched this week. As part of the special program, students attend online classes in April, followed by a physical mobility program in July, when the participants will meet in Pécs for a week and build a community garden with local NGOs.

The academic program is provided by the Department of Community and Social Studies of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, while the International Centre is responsible for the overall organization of the program. After class, exciting social programs await the students, led by Hungarian mentor students.

One of the objectives of the EDUC alliance is to provide high-quality short-cycle programs for its students. The University of Pécs’s program is the first of its kind to take place. Every EDUC member university selected 5 students to participate in the course. There was a huge interest in the program, some universities had over 70 students applying to participate.

In July, two EDUC short-term programs will be offered to the students. The course ‘Connecting Your IoT Devices’ will be organized by the University of Rennes 1 in France and the ’Law and Technology’ program will be hosted by the University of Pécs in Hungary. By the end of 2022, a total of nine short-cycle programs will be organized at EDUC member universities in various subject areas.

The European Digital UniverCity (EDUC) is one of the first European university alliances supported by the European Commission. The member universities are the University of Potsdam (Germany), the University of Cagliari (Italy), Masaryk University (Czech Republic), the University of Rennes 1 (France), the University of Paris Nanterre (France), and the University of Pécs (Hungary). One of the goals of the alliance is to make the EDUC member universities’ education systems accessible and offer a number of virtual and physical mobility programs for the 160,000 students and 20,000 faculty of the alliance.


Student Think Tank – Create Your European University

Do you want to shape your university of tomorrow?

What should your digital campus look like? How can students get involved in shaping the environment at their university in the future? What experiences and opportunities abroad do you imagine? What skills do you need in today and tomorrow's society?

These questions concern to you - the students! 

On 22 June, we invite you to our Student Think Tank Open Futures to discuss these and other questions. By the way, you will also do something for your CV and receive an EDUC certificate!

We want to meet you for one day - to discuss with you and learn from you on these four important topics:

1. FutureDigitalCampus

How can EDUC build a digital campus that is open, diverse and integrative at the same time?

2. FutureInvolvment 

How can students structurally shape EDUC?

3. FutureMobility

How can EDUC improve the settings of physical mobility to its partner universities?

4. FutureSkills

How can EDUC support students to develop those skills that are considered indispensable in modern society and on the labour market?
