For Joint Mobility Projects (JMP) and Joint Degree Projects (JDP)

1. Description

The Industrialised Countries Instrument (ICI) promotes co-operation 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 2010 ICI-ECP Call for Proposals supports co-operation with Australia and the Republic of Korea by means of Joint Degree and Joint Mobility projects. Such projects focus on structured exchanges of students and faculty members; and on the joint development of joint, or shared curricula and joint study programmes, as well as on the award of joint or double degrees in the case of Joint Degree projects.

All Joint Degree and Joint 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; sustainability and dissemination.

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

2. Funding

The total budget available for the co-financing of projects amounts to approximately EUR 2.5 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, and three to four projects EU –Republic of Korea will be funded in 2010, from which at least 2 are planned to be Joint Degree projects.
