Campuses of experimentation
EUCOR – the European Campus with Strasbourg University, University of Haute Alsace, and Crous Strasbourg.
EUCOR – the European Campus with Karlsruhe institute of Technology and University of Freiburg.
EUCOR – The European Campus first conducted a comparative analysis of the services provided by the student cards of its 5 member universities. The consortium was also interested in the services targeted primarily by students when they move to a partner university. Access to university restaurant and library services were identified.
A cohort of mobility students between Karlsruhe, Freiburg and Strasbourg has also been identified and exchanges are currently underway to test the solution.
Crous Besançon and Burgundy Franche-Comté University
For its 56,000 students, just one single multi-service card for all eight partners of the COMUE Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, a Mifare Desfire EV1 is used. For the annual renewal of the students cards, the EV2 will be issued. This choice enables the institutions to confidently consider setting up other services. The Communication Department works on the card’s design, which will include the European Student hologram and the QR code.
The identification process of a limited cohort of outgoing students on the four aspects of outgoing mobility (Erasmus, cross-border exchanges, doctoral students and internships) has been launched. The supplier of the student card management system should quickly integrate the ESC libraries what will allow us to implement the ESC module.
The publisher of the Erasmus exchange management solution used in the HEO of Franche-Comté, was also approached for the implementation of an interface with EWP.
Furthermore a strong cooperation with the management of the University libraries (‘common documentation canters’ – SCD) is going on to take into account the ESC of incoming mobility students. A free tool of the QR Code Desktop Reader type, installed on the stations of the various ‘SCDs’, would make it easy to get ESC-R information.

EDUCatt in the five Campuses of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore: Milano, Brescia, Piacenza e Cremona, Roma
EDUCatt will contribute to the experimentation phase of the ESC project in all the five campuses of Università Cattolica, both welcoming incoming students and sending outgoing students abroad.
Indeed, EDUCatt will test the real functioning of the ESC for the access to on campus services thanks to the identification of a small cohort of students coming from the universities “Universitat Rovira i Virgili Tarragona” in Spain and “Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg” in Germany.
Likewise, a cohort of outgoing students of Università Cattolica has been defined as well. These ones will spend a period abroad hosted by the universities “Universitat Rovira i Virgili Tarragona” in Spain, “Freie Universität Berlin” in Germany, “Universidade de Evora” in Portugal and “Aristotle University of Thessaloniki” in Greece.
All these students will be able to benefit in advance from the access to the services offered by the hosting institutions through a university card compatible with the ESC standards. To be compatible and enable the student recognition, the card must have the ESC hologram and QR code on it.
On the one hand, incoming students, showing their ESC, will be able to access the following facilities:
– Library of Università Cattolica: student owning a valid ESC will be given a temporary Wi-Fi password to access online resources that do not require a registration while on-campus and a printed barcode to access those spaces within the library area protected by turnstiles. Students who also provide the library service with some additional personal data will be registered in the libraries management system, which means they can access all available online resources, both on and off campus;
– Food service: incoming students only need to provide their ESC to get a ticket for a daily full meal in the canteens managed by EDUCatt at a reduced fare.
– Health care center: also in this case, incoming students have the right to generic medical consultations, only by providing their ESC.
On the other hand, outgoing students will be able to benefit in advance from their ESC in order to access on campus services, in accordance with what the hosting institutions will decide to offer.
Campus Card Berlin
University College Cork
Originally founded in 1845 as “Queen’s College Cork”, University College Cork is one of Ireland’s oldest institutions of higher learning. Ranked in the top 2% of universities worldwide, UCC was twice named Ireland’s Sunday Times University of the Year in 2016, and again in 2017. UCC was honoured to be named the World’s First Green University Campus (Federation for Environmental Education, Copenhagen). During the inaugural UNESCO Learning City Awards in 2015, Cork was named as one of only 12 UNESCO learning cities.
University College Cork currently has approximately 22,000 students, all of whom use the same Mifare Classic ID cards to access several different services on campus. This card has been in use in UCC since 2007, and there is an extensive network of access controlled areas as well as other systems that all depend on this card technology.
There are several student services using the ID card as a means for service delivery, however, for the purpose of the pilot, UCC will concentrate on delivering Library Services to incoming students with a European Student ID card.
We have partnered with the University of Strasbourg for this pilot, and each university will identify a cohort of students who can test access to services using their new ESC-enabled ID card. On presentation an ESC ID card at the library’s main entrance desk, the cardholder will be granted access to the library facilities and many of the facilities within. Library Services that will be piloted are:
– Access to the library and publications within (including daily newspapers)
– Book borrowing – restricted to students remaining in Cork for longer than 2 months
– Open access PCs in the Library and IT Services’ IT labs throughout the campus
– Online resources and past exam papers – once logged into the open access PCs
– Access to Special Collection and Archive materials
– Full use of the Library Helpdesk facilities
– WIFI via Eduroam, or on request of Guest WIFI access if the home institution does not use the Eduroam service
– Booking of the Library Group Study Rooms – to be booked by Library staff on request of the student
UCC students who agree to be part of the pilot will have the holographic logo incorporated on their UCC ID cards. Those UCC students will use that card to try to access student services within the University of Strasbourg.
We are proud to be involved in this project, and in taking a step towards the development of a European student community.
