The top representatives of Euskampus, “International Campus of Excellence” led by the UPV/EHU, Fundación DIPC and Tecnalia Corporación, and the Bordeaux Idex, “Excellence Initiative” at Bordeaux University, met again on Friday 20 July 2012. The meeting aimed to back this joint project, Euroregional excellence, and to consolidate the work of the operations team.
The meeting approved all of the activities and milestones achieved as of June 2012 and reviewed the European projects carried out jointly: SUDOE, Aquitaine-Basque Country Call, work on joint thesis under joint supervision, the work of the Euskampus “Knowledge Hubs”, integrated with those of Labex, Bordeaux Cluster of Excellence, etc.
The joint Strategic Plan was likewise approved and renewed. The plan sets outs a new timeline of activities, planning of enhanced resources and new international promotion channels for this project which is a commitment of both universities, in their European positioning and internationalisation process, and essential in the development of the Basque Country-Aquitaine Euroregion.
