ECIU University will change the way of delivering higher education by its ground-breaking and innovative education model. ECIU University is formed by 12 European universities known for their entrepreneurial mindset and their willingness to give back to the society. Together learners, alumni, teachers, researchers, enterprises, NGOs, public stakeholders and citizens solve wicked multi-disciplinary challenges in the spirit of continuous learning. The aim is to transform traditional degree-based education into challenge-based. The XR Campus will be a tool for working with stakeholders and challenge-based education, together with colleagues from all over Europe. This pilot shows that the future of European collaboration in higher education is all about connecting our campuses and their communities.
