The LIVIUS project aims at supplying appropiate answers to the needs identified in the action plan for e-learning Defining Tomorrow's Education: to develop virtual knowledge networks in Europe that make use of the Internet and the new ICT, in order to, first, enhance the quality of learning, simplifying the access to resources and services and, second, promote cooperation and the exchange of experiences and information.

The project has the following general goals:

- create a new organisational, didactic and psychoeducational model of the European Virtual Association of Universities;

- develop cooperation among the partners in order to design didactic paths and common academic curricula that allow the acknowledgement of titles at a European level;

- transfer knowledge by means of the new technologies and innovate teaching and learning methods;

- renew the teacher's and student's roles;

- produce 2 pilot modules of 20 hours of video lessons, each one in four different languages (English, French, Spanish and Italian).
