Launch of the EPICS portal and Virtual Exchange concept

In the Annual Conference of EADTU of 2010, 27-29 September in Zermatt the EPICS portal was officially launched.

It was the start of the first universities to sign the institutional agreements for exchanging students. The 4 universities that were the first to sign are the Open Universiteit Nederland (NL), Universidade Aberta (PT), UNED (E) and Uninettuno (IT). The coming months we expect several more traditional and Open universities to join and start uploading their courses. The launch of EPICS in Zermatt was therefore also a call for all universities to start offering courses via the portal and providing their students access to other partner universities.

You can read all about the Virtual Exchange concept in the publication EPICS: New Opportunities for International Student Mobility.
