5 universities, 3 countries, 1 campus
Eucor – The European Campus is a unique trinational university alliance. In the heart of Europe, together we are building a scientific space with a clearly defined profile, without walls or borders, with an international reputation. Common structures, governance and strategy in research and teaching lay the foundations. In this fashion, we are becoming a European University.
Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Hans-Jochen Schiewer
President of Eucor – The European Campus
Eucor – The European Campus is an alliance of five universities based in the Upper Rhine region, namely the Universities of Basel, Freiburg, Haute-Alsace, Strasbourg as well as the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). With more than 115,000 students, it offers a dozen joint courses leading to double or triple degrees, while all students have the opportunity to take the courses of their choice in five institutions without multiplying the administrative procedures and the costs.
Many of the 15,000 researchers at the European Campus collaborate on a wide range of cross-border projects, in particular in the four priority areas defined by the alliance of quantum science and technology, precision medicine, sustainability research and the humanities. At the crossroads of teaching and research, five cross-border doctoral colleges are preparing the best brains of tomorrow for international collaboration.

Eucor – The European Campus, which is located in the geographically and historically extraordinary Upper Rhine region, offers its students and researchers the best of all worlds. The trinational network transcends the borders between France, Germany and Switzerland and combines the strengths of five first-class universities with different cultural and academic orientations to form a common research, education and innovation area that is unparalleled.
In the administrative field, Eucor also offers us the possibility of exchanging across national borders. Specifically in human resources and human and organisational development, it is particularly useful to interact with colleagues from other universities on HR topics and best practices in personnel management and development. Our meetings allow for creative discussion around issues such as digital transition and internationalisation.
Two countries, two different societies, two sets of social expectations. For me, studying in a neighbouring country as part of my Regio Chimica degree
and my current master’s is about much more than just the academic side of things! In my opinion, studying in two languages is the best thing you can do to prepare yourself for working in
an international environment.
