The e-LERU partners shared their membership of the League of European Research Universities (LERU). Through the Top Science programme the e-LERU partners wanted therefore like to stress their common expertise in research. The e-LERU Top Science programme consisted of a series of filmed lectures given by leading scientists from the e-LERU partner universities and made available on the e-LERU virtual campus. The Top Science lectures, as defined by the boards of the partner universities, tried to cover the most advanced fields of research of each university and thus reflect each university's scientific strengths.

All lectures were made available online as video streams on the e-LERU website and be accompanied by slides and additional material (enriched-media), if available. 

Objectives

The aim of this series of lectures was to communicate the goals and accomplishments of a university's research to the partner universities. The programme was intended to serve broad communities including students as well as researchers.

A number of learning tools were created on the basis of the audiovisual recordings of the lectures. The lectures indeed constituted supplementary learning material for existing master's study programmes and e-LERU modules. The Top Science lectures embodied the concept of research-based education.
