The Industrialised Countries Instrument (ICI) promotes cooperation between the European Union and seventeen industrialised and other high-income countries and territories in North America, the Asia-Pacific region and the Gulf region(Note 1). One of the supported specific actions promotes "people-to-people links" with the aim to enhance mutual understanding between cultures and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge.

This 2009 ICI-ECP Call for Proposals supports cooperation with Australia, Japan and the Republic of Korea by means of Joint Mobility projects focused on structured exchanges of students and faculty members; and on the joint development of joint, or shared curricula and joint study programmes.

All the mobility projects must address: development of innovative international curricula; student services, language and cultural preparation; organisational frameworks for student mobility and faculty members' mobility; evaluation; and sustainability and dissemination.

The Call is open to higher education institutions, to vocational education and training institutions and to consortia of higher education and/or vocational education and training institutions. Eligible applicants must be from one of the Partner Countries and from one of the 27 countries of the European Union.


The budget available for the co-financing of projects amounts to approximately EUR 2.8 million. Comparable funding will be provided by the Partner Countries in accordance with the rules applicable for each of them.
It is anticipated that three to four projects EU - Australia, one to two projects EU – Japan and three to four projects EU- Republic Korea will be funded in 2009.
