The European Campus is the centre of the transregional research area on the Upper Rhine. The University of Freiburg joins forces with the universities of Basel, Upper Alsace and Strasbourg, and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in placing cross-border research and teaching on a new platform to reinforce their common position in the international arena. In the form of a European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC), the consortium of universities is to be granted university-equivalent rights that will enable them to submit joint research applications, endow chairs and offer courses of study. With the combined competencies of the 15,000 researchers, 11,000 doctoral students and 115,000 students, the consortium seeks to create a clearly defined research area without borders and with a presence on the international stage.
