EUCOR, according to the European Confederation of Universities on the Upper Rhine, is an international cooperation that combines the universities in the Upper Rhine and was established in 1989. The universities that are part of the cooperation are:
• Universität Basel,
• Universität Oberelsass (Mulhouse-Colmar),
• Universität Straßburg,
• Universität Freiburg,
• Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (Karlsruhe)
The aim is to strengthen cooperation at all levels, especially for students. This means that KIT students can attend lectures in these universities and collected ECTS credits, which are also recognized by KIT. The students can not only attend lectures, but can also profit from areas of joint studies.
