... In the beginning there was the region, Danube countries and beyond. A region with a common history, albeit with different takes. A region with a strong tradition of academic cooperation that finally led to the first multilateral University exchange program in the region: On Jan 1, 1995 the CEEPUS I Agreement signed by Austria, Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, the Slovak Republic and Slovenia entered into force. As the program proved a success, more and more countries kept joining and our objectives kept evolving: Today there are 15+ members states and CEEPUS III has entered into force on May 2, 2011. Since 1995 more than 30.000 students and teachers have been exchanged.
CEEPUS is based on innovative concepts, lean management, user friendliness and above all on the ability to sustain enthusiasm in our joint venture on all levels. We also like to take on new challenges and thus CEEPUS is looking forward to cooperation options in the framework of the EU Strategy for the Danube Region.
So, if you are hedging a vision of regional cooperation or regional exchange: turn to CEEPUS as partner to make it come to life. You are most welcome!
