We promote cooperation in the field of higher education in Central Europe.

What our scholars have to say
Peter Purg, PhD
Professor, University of Nova Gorica
I had the occasion to work with architecture students who normally don’t deal with media and contemporary arts in their study programme. CEEPUS allows me to think innovative – I get money and time to go there and to focus on something new and do something new.
Prof Dr. József Gál
Vice-Dean of University of Szeged
CEEPUS scholarships open the horizons for our students and faculty staff to countries we do not necessarily know enough about. In addition to the classical semester mobilities, they also provide an excellent opportunity to gain short-term professional experience. Incoming teachers and students add colour to our academic year and provide useful information about their country, that can be of great value to future engineers.
Dr. Gabriella Vöő
Exchange teacher in Olomouc
There was a large student turnout, the students were interested and they participated in the discussions. I had conversations with colleagues about academic and administrative matters and we also discussed possibilities for joint research projects in the future.

Teaching and Learning Bioanalysis

Minister Prize Awards Ceremony, Bucharest

The methods of bioanalysis are of great importance in most of the areas of everyday life because the techniques are applied in food industry, environment, healthcare, drug industry, quality control.

The CEEPUS Network “Teaching and Learning Bioanalysis” is coordinated by the George Emil Palade” University of Medicine in Rumania and has 19 Partner Institutes from all over the CEEPUS region. The most important activity is sharing the knowledge gained in bioanalytical field both on research and educational terms among the partner institutions. By doing so, the experiences of the partner universities in various field of separation science and bioanalysis can be shared and the instrumentation available in the partner-laboratories can be “co-utilized”. As a result of this fruitful cooperation several scientific papers were co-published, over 80 joint MSc and PhD were submitted and almost 20 successful Summer Schools were organized.

Image Processing, Information Engineering & Interdisciplinary Knowledge Exchange

Dr. Sorantin, Network Coordinator and his colleague Dr. Lacekova

This interdisciplinary network is specialized on cooperation between medical and engineering departments. Especially in terms of Pediatric Imaging, one of the main focusses of the network, procedures and interpretation are even more challenging, because children are not simply “small adults”.

They differ, both in body proportion and composition, and their bones are still growing and thus show epiphyses, which should not be misinterpreted as fractures. Radiation protection is key as children are still growing and thus more of their cells are in the sensitive division phase. Children younger than 10 years of age carry a 3 - 4 times higher risk of incurring DNA damage and developing leukemia or solid tumors than adults at the age of 30 - 40. Also psychological aspects need to be considered. Infants and young children react instinctively to unknown and scary situations, their patience is limited. It is therefore essential to work swiftly and smoothly as not to overtax the patients´ endurance.

54 institutes are working together and due to the complexity of the subjects dealt with, the special experience of each partner is a valuable input for the whole network. The network won the CEEPUS Ministers' Prize of Excellence in 2020 !
They offer various exchange activities, research topics, common publications and a lot of enthusiasm due to their long term cooperation!
