Eureka SD

Enhancing University Research and Education in Areas Useful for Sustainable Development

Projektziele

Eureka SD is an Erasmus Mundus Action 2 project coordinated by the University of Oldenburg. In order to support an international education and research, the project offers 315 mobilities for students and staff to undertake periods of study, teaching, research or training at partner universities located in the participating European and Latin American countries. Each mobility will have a strong focus on topics related to sustainable development. Most of the questions and problems studied will be of transdisciplinary nature, which means that different research disciplines will be addressed.

In addition to the organization of the mobilities for all education and administrative university levels, Eureka SD will support the establishment of six regional clusters pooling all partners and associated partners like HEIs, companies, governmental organizations and nongovernmental organizations in specific Latin American regions. The European partners and the representatives of the regional clusters will develop mobility profiles taking into account the needs of the LA partners and the offers of the European partners. Based on the mobility profiles the available fields of study will be determined.
