The University of Applied Sciences, Weihenstephan, set up a project about the "implementation of relevant European teaching contents in the studies of landscape architecture" under the project title of EU-TEACH. The application was submitted via the "Lifelong Learning Programme" which is a section of the EU ERASMUS programme. The application was sent in May 2010 to the Education, Audiovisual & Culture Agency (EACEA).
The project funding was approved on 26th July 2010. It started in November 2010.
IFLA Europe is one of the 5 main partners in the project, which also includes the universities of Sheffield, Corvinius (Budapest), Kassel and ECLAS.
IFLA Europe undertakes to participate at virtual and physical meetings, to establish the education network and to help to develop targets and measures for European teaching contents. IFLA Europe Project leader is Fritz Auweck (
EU-teach is the first stage of a two stage process, which second phase deals with the specific development of teaching offers, organisational and legal questions etc. for finally developing and implementing a teaching cluster among landscape architecture universities.
The basis for developing teaching clusters (stage 2) is stage 1 dealt with in this project: The definition of Relevant European Teaching Contents of higher education for landscape architects and the development of a qualification profile all over Europe. An exemplary university analysis is carried out by means of the qualification profile. This analysis will reveal, amongst others, the expertise and possible development potential of the universities involved. The analysis results with the presentation of expertise and possible development potential is, among other factors, the first rough basis for developing the teaching cluster.
