2010 Call for proposals
Reference: EACEA/31/2009
Application deadline: 8. April 2010


In The context of the EU-US co-operation in higher education and training a new call has been launched together with the US Department of Education, covering a series of actions - grouped under the common title of "ATLANTIS".

The 2010 ATLANTIS Call for Proposals covers the following actions:

Transatlantic Degree Consortia Projects
This Action provides support for consortia of EU and U.S. higher education institutions to implement dual/double or joint degree programmes. Transatlantic Degree consortia projects may apply for three types of funding: i) flat rates/fixed amounts for administering the project to consortia institutions, ii) transatlantic mobility grants to students and iii) transatlantic mobility grants to faculty.
Excellence Mobility Projects
This Action provides funding for international curriculum development projects that involve short term transatlantic mobility not directly related to the award of a joint or dual/double degree. Consortia applying for such kind of project must be able to demonstrate a proven track record in transatlantic cooperation and exchanges including those funded under preceding EU-U.S. agreements.
Policy Oriented Measures
This Action provides support to multilateral EU-US projects and activities designed to enhance collaboration in the higher education and vocational training field.

For EU institutions, the budget available amounts to approximately EUR 5,5 million. For U.S. institutions comparable funding will be provided. The European Commission will provide funding for the direct use of the EU partners, and the U.S. Department of Education (FIPSE) will provide funding for the direct use of the United States partner(s).


Background information about the programme:

You can find further information on the ATLANTIS Programme on the website of the Directorate-General EAC (Education and Culture) of the European Commission.
