Challenge-based learning and innovation

ECIU University is the first European university where learners and researchers cooperate with cities and businesses to solve real-life challenges. The innovative university model was launched in November 2019 by the European Consortium of Innovative Universities (ECIU) of which the University of Trento is a proud member.

The objective is to establish a new concept of international university, going beyond what is Erasmus mobility programmes and international relations, with new academic, research and transfer methods which are more flexible, international and based on the resolution of real-life problems.
