Action 1: Joint Projects (JP)

Joint Projects (JPs) are implemented at institutional level. Joint Projects are based on multilateral partnerships between higher education institutions in the EU and the Partner Countries. They promote the exchange of knowledge and know-how between EU universities and institutions in the Partner Countries and between Partner Country institutions themselves in various cases. Joint Projects are implemented by the institutions themselves. Relevant themes for Joint Projects include curriculum development, enhancing university governance and creating better links between higher education and society at large.

Two categories of Joint Projects may be supported:

  1. 'National Projects' should be of benefit to the Partner Country and focus on national priorities set by the Ministry of Education for that Partner Country.
  2. 'Multi-Country Projects' aim to be of benefit to more than one Partner Country. They focus on addressing regional priorities which are common to all the Partner Countries within a specific region. They can also address a 'national priority' which is common to each of the participating Partner Countries.

National and regional priorities are defined in the Calls for Proposal.

Multi-Country Projects may involve Partner Countries from different regions, provided that the theme of the proposal is identified as a regional or national priority for all of the participating Partner Countries.

In principle, the maximum possible duration of Joint Projects is 36 months.
