Today, the 1st of November 2022, CIVIS launches a new series of 18 Blended Intensive Programmes – BIPs, a new format of Erasmus+ mobility.
All BIPs applications take place through the CIVIS mobility portal, which can be accessed directly from the listings in the CIVIS Course Catalogue here. The period of application for these programmes is between 1 and 30 November 2022.
Every BIP combines online teaching with a short period of physical mobility, where you can spend 5 days at another university with students from across the CIVIS Alliance. By combining online sessions with a short trip for face-to-face teaching, this innovative format opens up opportunities for international study to new groups of students.
At the moment, 18 BIPs are available on the CIVIS Courses page, all with deadline on 30 November 2022:

Each BIP is developed, organised and taught by academics at three or more CIVIS member universities. Academics across the Alliance meet through the CIVIS Hubs to work together and develop these exciting new educational programmes for students.
CIVIS believes in education with impact, so the CIVIS Hubs and all CIVIS programmes, among which the BIPs, are developed to respond to one of the 5 CIVIS Challenges. These are some of the biggest issues facing our societies and our world:
- Cities, Territories and Mobility
- Climate, Environment, Energy
- Digital and Technological Transformations
- Societies, Culture and Heritage
To tackle these issues, CIVIS uses interdisciplinary teaching and learning. Anchored in academic excellence, these courses often cross the borders of traditions subjects, university cycles or faculties.
CIVIS is a European University Alliance gathering 11 member universities: Aix-Marseille Université (France), National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Greece), University of Bucharest (Romania), Université libre de Bruxelles (Belgium), Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (Spain), Sapienza Università di Roma (Italia), Stockholm University (Sweden), Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen (Germany), University of Glasgow (UK), Paris Lodron University of Salzburg (Austria) and University of Lausanne (Switzerland). Selected by the European Commission as one of the first 17 European Universities pilots, it brings together around half a million students and more than 70 000 staff members, including 37 400 academics and researchers.
