Call for ETSAC Participants for the Erasmus BIP Project RIGHT TO THE CITY

Three seats are available for ETSAC students to participate in the second edition of the Erasmus Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) RIGHT TO THE CITY.

Blended Intensive Programmes are programs under the European framework of the Erasmus+ program, promoting collaboration among partner universities for an educational project combining collaborative teaching/learning among students from these universities with a short-term physical mobility period. They are brief programs organized by a minimum of three European universities employing innovative teaching-learning methodologies. More information about the program is available here: Mobilidade KA131 Erasmus+ Estudos de Curta Duración (

The BIP program “RIGHT TO THE CITY” will be conducted for the second time in 2024 in a marginalized neighborhood in the city of Porto (PT). Actions will be taken there aimed at reclaiming the right to the city and the right to decent habitat for residents. The expected impact focuses on improving the knowledge and practices of the parties involved, contributing to the equitable development of the city by ensuring permeability between academia, practitioners, and society through the dissemination of content and tools supporting the co-creation of a city to address common primary needs and rights.
