Capacity-building projects in the field of higher education support the modernisation, accessibility and internationalisation of higher education in Partner Countries. These projects build on the success of the Alfa, Edu-link and Tempus programmes.
The projects aim to encourage cooperation between the EU and Partner Countries and support eligible Partner Countries in addressing challenges in the management and governance of their higher education institutions. This includes improving the quality of higher education, developing new and innovative education programmes, modernising higher education systems through reform policies as well as fostering cooperation across different regions of the world through joint initiatives.
There are 2 types of capacity-building projects:
In the case of capacity-building projects targeting eligible Partner Countries from Regions 1, 2 and 3 (refer to Part A of the Erasmus+ Programme Guide), both categories of projects (Joint Projects and Structural Projects) may include, in addition, a Special Mobility Strand for staff and students. This Mobility Strand is evaluated separately.
Capacity-building projects can be:
E-tutorial on the international dimension of Erasmus+. This e-tutorial provides information about opportunities available to Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and their staff and students based in Partner Countries.
E-tutorial on how to prepare a competitive proposal. This e-tutorial provides information on how to apply to funding opportunities.
