"The Arqus consortium provides our universities with a wide range of possibilities to break new ground together and to develop and expand on the basis of our complementarity and our strengths. By following the vision of creating a shared inter-university campus across borders, we offer the members of our universities new options to experience an international (European) dimension in their daily work. By intensifying our cooperation, we want to explore new formats and frameworks which would allow seamless mobility in the future and we want to generate new ideas to enhance cooperation and thus raise the quality in education, research and university administration."
