About us Faculty of Spatial Sciences Education International students


NEURUS is the Network for European and US Regional and Urban Studies. NEURUS presently delivers the International Certificate on Urban and Regional Development (ICURD) programme. Students from the 7 NEURUS universities participating in ICURD are exchanged between their US or European host university to a university on the other continent for the execution of a research project. The programme is supported by many other components, including workshops, seminars, a distance learning course and cultural and language introduction programmes.


NEURUS is an international consortium of universities dedicated to the collaborative study of urban and regional development issues. The origin of the acronym NEURUS derives from the consortium's original title when first established in 1998: the Network for European and U.S. Regional and Urban Studies consisted of six universities, three in Europe and three in the United States. Today, the thirteen university NEURUS consortium is continuing to explore partnerships with universities and colleagues elsewhere in North America, Asia, and Latin America. It is no longer a network comprised only of institutions in Europe and the United States.
