On September 21st , the EuroTeQ Course Catalogue will be launched, followed by a discussion on how to develop the golden road towards IT standards for European higher education. This unique hybrid meeting will physically take place at Neth-ER, Brussels and interactively online. All partners and collaborators interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the path to achieve better IT standards for European higher education are welcome to join the event.

The event is also in recognition of the hard work put in by the team and all partner universities over the past 3 years to move the process of the course catalogue from a manual operation to an ‘Automated’ one. The course information in the catalogue is now sourced directly by the IT-systems of the participating institutions. To achieve this, EuroTeQ is making use of the Open Education API protocol and the eduXchange technology developed by SURF, the IT umbrella organisation of Dutch higher education institutions. 

The course catalogue is meant to provide a large contribution towards reaching the 2030 mobility goal of 50% of graduates with a mobility experience within the alliance. In the most recent edition (summer semester 2023), 93 courses were offered, drawing 850 student registrations.
