Transatlantic Exchange Partnerships (TEP) and Transatlantic Degree Partnerships (TDP)

Call for proposals 2010

Reference: EACEA/30/2009

Application deadline: 24 March 2010

In the context of the European Union - Canada Framework for Co-operation in Higher Education, Training and Youth (EU-Canada Programme) a new call for proposals has been launched to fund joint degree or study/training programmes allowing transatlantic exchanges between European and Canadian education institutions.

The funded activities, such as the development of curricula, joint study programmes, international internships, exchanges and study abroad with provision for mutual credit recognition and language and cultural preparation, will benefit to higher education students, vocational education and training learners and teachers/trainers/administrative staff. The main focus of activities must be on transatlantic rather than intra-European or intra-Canadian interactions.

Submission of grant requests under this call is open to higher education institutions and vocational education and training institutions.

Each project must have one lead institution in the EU and one lead institution in Canada, responsible for submitting the common proposal and for the management of the project. These lead institutions must be higher education or training institutions. The consortium must be composed of at least four institutions in total – i.e. two from the EU and two from Canada. These institutions may be either higher education or training institutions, or a mixture of both, depending on the project.

There are two types of actions under this call, namely Transatlantic Exchange Partnerships and Transatlantic Degree Partnerships programmes.

For Transatlantic Exchange Partnerships (TEP) projects support is provided to enable EU-Canada consortia of higher education institutions and training institutions, to carry out joint study and training programmes and to implement student and faculty mobility. Support includes support for administration, grants for students and members of the academic and administrative staff. The maximum duration of TEP projects is 36 months.

For Transatlantic Degree Partnerships (TDP) projects support is provided to develop and implement dual/double or joint degree programs. Support includes support for the development work and administration, grants for students and members of the academic and administrative staff. The maximum duration of TDP projects is 48 months. Detailed descriptions of the actions can be found in the Programme Guide on this website.


The EU budget available for the co-financing of projects in the context of the 2010 call for proposals is estimated to be € 1.974.000. It is anticipated that approximately 3 Transatlantic Degree Partnership (TDP) projects and 5 Transatlantic Exchange Partnership (TEP) projects will be funded in 2010. Out of the five TEP projects two are foreseen to be with vocational training focus, if these represent sufficient quality. The maximum amount of funding on the EU side will be 428.000€ for a 4-year TDP project and 138.000 Euro for a 3-year TEP project.
