Erasmus+ EurIdentity Certificate


More than ever, there is a need for the interaction and exchange of common knowledge between different European cultures.

The consortium, consisting of the htw saar - University of Applied Sciences, the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern,  Saarland University,  Trier University, University of Liège,  Université de Lorraine,  University of Luxembourg,  in the frame of the University of the Greater Region - UniGR and the Erasmus+ programme, aims to create a certificate in European Studies for students from all disciplines in order to facilitate the aforementioned goal.

The certificate will consist of a level 1 and a level 2. The first will focus both on the functional aspects of Europe and on fundamental European values. The second level will deepen the knowledge acquired in the first by addressing the contemporary cultural, economic, political and social challenges of Europe. The consortium will pursue the following objectives:

  1. Educate a new generation of European citizens;
  2. Foster cross-border mobility and equip students with intercultural competences;
  3. Boost students’ employability in the European and cross-border labour market;
  4. Benefit from the geographical, linguistic and institutional make-up of the Greater Region.

Consequently, the project will address a number of challenges and needs:

  1. Education on the EU, its institutions, its history, and values;
  2. Explicit inclusion of students from all scientific disciplines;
  3. Cross-border mobility in the Greater Region;
  4. Employability of students in the European and cross-border labour market;
  5. Education through innovative pedological tools.

The project supports the ambition of the Vision 2040 of the Greater Region, which aims to promote a system in which higher education institutions play a leading role in the transmission of knowledge on Europe and intercultural competences.
