CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Program for University Studies) is a multilateral university exchange program in the extended Danube region. Currently there are 15+ members states who joined the current CEEPUS III agreement. Within the CEEPUS framework, universities form networks with other partner universities, so that exchange and cooperation on joint courses take place. Currently Austria coordinates most of the networks within the framework of CEEPUS.
Every year all successfully completed CEEPUS networks are assessed by international experts. After their evaluation the highest ranked network is awarded with the Minister Prize at the annual Joint Minister Conference. This year the network “Image Processing, Information Engineering & Interdisciplinary Knowledge Exchange" an interdisciplinary network focused on cooperation between medical and engineering departments was awarded with the 2020 Minister Prize. This network was coordinated by university professor Dr. Erich Sorantin at the Medical University of Graz.

We congratulate the Medical University of Graz!
