Eucor – The European Campus: trinational studies, research and teaching

Eucor – The European Campus

Eucor – The European Campus is a trinational alliance of five universities in the Upper Rhine, a border region between Germany, France and Switzerland. Its members are the universities of Basel, Freiburg, Haute-Alsace, Strasbourg, and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). Together, these institutions crystallise the skills of some 17,000 researchers, 9,900 doctoral candidates and 120,000 students in a region that is economically strong and research intensive in the heart of Europe. Their aim is to build a scientific space with a clearly defined profile, without walls or borders and with international outreach.
