Right from the start, the Euskampus inter-institutional alliance has been based on the necessary private-public complementary work in science, technology, innovation and its application in the productive structure and to the benefit of society.
This private-public inter-institutional initiative was set up with the legal standing of a foundation as it is the one that best adapts to achieving the goals of the Campus of International Excellence – Euskampus project. Thus, Euskampus Fundazioa aspires to become a key element to drive Basque R&D&I and its internationalisation, with a clear vocation of social responsibility and integration with its territory.
The mission of Euskampus Fundazioa is therefore to design, coordinate and executive measures that, with the collaboration of all its partners, consolidate and accelerate this internationalisation and modernisation process of the University of the Basque Country – EuskalHerrikoUnibertsitatea by means of the implementation of the Euskampus project.
The Bordeaux University PRES [Higher Education and Research Hub], with its IdEX excellence initiative, is our strategic European partner. It is one of the mainstays of the internationalisation process and is present in countless actions in order to jointly construct a Cross-border and Euroregional Centre of Excellence.
Euskampus Fundazioa works in different areas:
- Knowledge hubs, skills alliances around the major challenges proposed in the Euskampus areas of specialisation: Collaborative research, teaching and transfer of knowledge.
- Cross-border Euroregional Campus of Excellence, together with Bordeaux University, a shared academic space between both universities and their partners. It fosters encounter, mobility and exchange of academic staff, researchers and students.
- Other excellence initiatives, such as participating in international projects, the Master’s and Doctorate School, actions with the students, Society-University Chairs, scientific dissemination, etc.
