The European Consortium of Innovative Universities
The ECIU University is an initiative of the European Consortium of Innovative Universities that aims to create a pioneering and innovative model of higher education institutions at a European level, that works as an open and flexible system.
The ultimate mission of the ECIU University project is to establish a European University where students, researchers, companies, citizens, public organizations and associations can create innovative solutions to solve real-life challenges, and make a real social impact.
The ECIU University aims to change the way university education is managed, moving from a perspective based exclusively on degrees to one based on multiple opportunities for learning and the achievement of competencies. In that sense, it represents a unique example of a European University that creates, launches and evaluates not only a training model but also an innovation system that includes education, research, valorisation and transfer, as well as administration, governance and environmental relations within a framework of innovation in all of these areas.
