eucor, the European Confederation of Upper Rhine Universities, is an association of universities in the Upper Rhine, and was founded in 1989. Participants include the following universities:
- University of Basel,
- University de Haute-Alsace (Mulhouse-Colmar),
- University de Strasbourg,
- University of Freiburg,
- Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
The goal is closer cooperation at all levels, especially on the part of students. This means for KIT students that they can attend classes at the partner universities and that credits achived can be transferred back to KIT. Apart from the possibility of individual courses available at partner universities, there are also joint degree programs offered.
