7 Universities in the Big Region have united to create access to a superior multicultural Studies and Research domain, thus facilitating mobility for students and researchers, as well as access to university facilities. The project is a laboratory to establish a real European university with the aim to use all synergies existing between different regions and allowing a higher quality university to all Europeans.
