ECIU University - The European Consortium of Innovative Universities - one of the 41 European University Alliances selected under the Erasmus+ programme aims to create a revolutionary and innovative educational model on a European scale, in which students, researchers, businesses, public organizations and citizens work together to find innovative solutions that have a positive and concrete impact on society.
Micro modules and micro-credentials offer more flexible and modular learning opportunities and can contribute to expanding training opportunities and strengthening the role of universities in lifelong learning.
