About: Across Seasonal Schools

Background: „Across – The European University for Cross-Border Knowledge Sharing “

Across is an exceptional collaboration project of ten European universities driven by the mission to establish an integrated cross-border European University. All partners are passionate about the idea to create a joint European higher education area:

  • Bialystok University of Technology (Poland)
  • Chemnitz University of Technology (Germany)
  • University of Craiova (Romania)
  • University of Girona (Spain/Catalonia)
  • University of Lleida (Spain/Catalonia)
  • University of Nova Gorica (Slovenia)
  • University of Perpignan (France)
  • Rēzekne Academy of Technologies (Latvia)
  • University of Ruse (Bulgaria)
  • University of Udine (Italia)
  • Ivan Frank National University of Lviv, (Associated Partner in Ukraine)

All universities participating in Across have in common their location in border regions. In regions close to the border, there is a significantly increased need for mobility for an overlapping education area and labor market, which, however, is confronted with inequalities in the legal, social and educational systems as well as cultural and language barriers. At the same time these so-called cross-border regions of the European Union comprise nearly 40 percent of the EU's land area, population and gross domestic product. The regional areas of tension are thus becoming key challenges for the European Union. Under the motto "building collaborative leadership for cross-border territories", the goal of Across is to overcome these borders and form a common European educational space with more than 100.000 students and 10.000 employees. In doing so, Across will serve as a model for other cross-border regions in Europe and beyond.
