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!

News & Events

The university alliance European Digital UniverCity or EDUC, funded by the European Commission, celebrates its second birthday today. The universities of Potsdam (Germany), Masaryk (Czech Republic), Pécs (Hungary), Cagliari (Italy), Paris-Nanterre (France) and Rennes 1 (France) joined forces as an alliance on October 1, 2019 to create a new form of collaboration within Europe.

EDUC connects universities and languages, different disciplines and faculties, and a wide range of students, researchers, faculty, and staff.

EDUC creates a shared, inclusive environment for people of various cultures, with diverse backgrounds and very different goals. With a focus on digitalization, the alliance creates new spaces for European exchange, support, and joint discussions. As a community, EDUC is developing new ways and opportunities to tackle problems of the future together. Inclusion, mobility, networking, and exchange are top priorities for EDUC.

In doing so, the alliance is constantly evolving. Over its short period of existence to date, it was able to expand its scope by adding the additional project EDUC-SHARE. With a clear focus on a shared research agenda, knowledge transfer, and citizen engagement, EDUC-SHARE is advancing research networking within EDUC and expanding thematic collaboration among the six EDUC partner universities on the one hand, and locally established research and participation frameworks on the other.

To accomplish these transformational goals, the alliance continues to develop new and exciting offers for its target groups:

A number of new mobility formats have been developed for alliance students: Summer and winter schools take place both digitally and on-site at universities. Short-term programs start with a digital preparation phase and add to this input with a one-week on-site visit linked to a specific project. Numerous digital courses from various disciplines as well as language courses complement these opportunities and create maximum flexibility. In a total of seven research seminars, the alliance has been supporting inter-European exchange between researchers from the partner universities. The seminars reflect the focus areas and expertise of the alliance universities and offer researchers a space for networking and perspective development. Teaching staff can receive further training and exchange ideas on current pedagogical approaches, as well as invent, try out, solidify, and sustain completely new formats in cooperative projects. Our administrative staff members are given the opportunity to meet and exchange best practices in one-week exchange programs. Furthermore, various language courses and e-tandems offer new opportunities to expand one’s knowledge.

We are therefore looking back on a successful project period so far and looking forward to an exciting future with the EDUC alliance.

German, Czech, Italian and French students, as well as students from the University of Pécs (PTE), are participating in a course on the culture of ecological responsibility this week, organized by the University of Pécs for the students in the European Digital UniverCity (EDUC) alliance. Thirty students from the six EDUC member universities have enrolled in the hybrid programme, which started with online classes in April, followed by an in-person community garden building program in Pécs this week.

In April, students took part in online classes to learn about the basics of social ecology theory. This week, the participants are meeting face-to-face in Pécs for a week-long programme and building a community garden together with local NGOs. The academic program is provided by the Department of Community and Social Studies, as well as the Department of Ethnography and Cultural Anthropology of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, while the overall organisation is carried out by the International Centre. The training is taking place at the Green Spot Community Garden in Pécs. Participants are also engaging in landscaping, gardening and outreach activities with local disadvantaged children at the ÉlményTár Tanoda.
