UPV/EHU Summer Courses Foundation


The Summer Courses Foundation created by the university of the Basque Country / Euskal Herriko Unibertsitatea, manages the organisation of summer courses, this year celebrating its 40th edition. These courses aim to be a benchmark within the context of the Summer Courses, thanks to the ongoing innovation of its programme and training formulas, its international scope, the added value offered, its extensive, consistent network of alliances, its commitment to the Basque Country, and the quality of its organisation

The Summer Courses are taught at the University of the Basque Country’s identity centre itself, starting up practically at the same time as when the university was designated as the University of the Basque Country, offering a dynamic range of quality courses, year after year, since that time. They have also become the perfect complement to the university academic activity that takes place throughout the year, representing a space for debate and critical thinking around an ever-changing society.

This has been due to the collaboration between the different institutions and entities, involving a strategic alliance with a number of firmly committed stakeholders in the project: institutions such as the Basque Government, the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa and the Donostia/San Sebastián city hall, private entities such as the BBVA Foundation, our main private partner, and many other agents that sustain or drive various initiatives and projects framed within the courses. The culmination of this ambitious initiative could not have occurred without all of our partners.
