The EU-CONEXUS partner universities share a common vision with regard to a new form of transnational university which issues common European degrees and common European diplomas

Students, staff and teaching personnel participate in tailor‐made mobility programmes adapted to their studies and/or their professional development path. Embedded mobilityin every study programme will enhance the language skills and intercultural competences of the students and also reinforce their sense of European identity and citizenship

Integrated bachelor‐, master and PhD programmes will combine the strengths in education, research and innovation of the partners. They will represent a unique point of entry in Europe and the world for studies in the subject area of smart urban coastal sustainability studies. Students will be able to customize their personal study programme across disciplines and following their personal time schedule by using digital means of education.

EU-CONEXUS will operatein close relationship with the socio‐economic environment. It will respond to actual needs of relative industries, support the regional innovation and development and foster an entrepreneurial mindset of their students. 

EU-CONEXUS understands itself as a service‐oriented institution that aims at the inclusion of a diversity of students through personalization and individualization of its study programme. “Smart” and innovative pedagogies (e‐learning, flexible course programme (major/minor approach), virtual/physical mobility, project‐based learning, work‐based experiences…) will create a new form of university open for students from different backgrounds and with divergent interests and needs for education and training. 

The final goal is to become the global leader in higher education and research in the area of smart urban coastal sustainability, with a perspective of expansion beyond the size of its founding consortium.
