Joint Master's Programme Euroculture Selected as a "Success Story"

04 March 2020

Joint Master's programme Euroculture has recently been selected as a "success story" by a panel of experts from the Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture of the European Commission.

The Euroculture Consortium, consisting of eight universities across Europe and four non-European partners, with the University of Groningen its coordinating institution, is extremely pleased to have earned such a distinction from the European Commission. Staff members involved in teaching, managing, and coordinating the joint programme, as well as students and alumni of Euroculture have all contributed their time and energy to this outstanding result.

What are “success stories”?
As communicated by the Directorate-General responsible for this selection, "success stories" are finalised projects that have distinguished themselves by their impact, contribution to policy-making, innovative results, and creative approach, and can be a source of inspiration for others. The selection of a project as a success story is made on the basis of rigorous criteria regarding its quality, relevance, and results.

Another project currently running
While the project that has received a “success story” distinction has been finalized, another Erasmus+ project is currently run by the Euroculture Consortium, providing funds for talented students and excellent researchers to join the programme and engage in academic exchange. The Euroculture Consortium remains committed to enhancing its joint programme and fostering international excellence in higher education.
