ESEU: pilot project on a transnational status for European Universities

The ESEU (European status for ECIU University) project seeks to overcome legal obstacles to a more complex transnational cooperation of European higher education institutions through the design of an institutionalised partnership model.

The project responds to one of the key initiatives put forward in the European Commission’s strategy for universities, aiming at developing a legal statute for alliances of higher education institutions. The legal statute would allow the alliances to act under one common personality, facilitating, among others, the implementation of joint programmes and the award of joint degrees.

The project team brings together the European Consortium of Innovative Universities (ECIU, project coordinator), Una Europa, EU-Conexus, Charm-EU and the European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC).

The project started on 1 March 2023 and will run for one year.
