Structural Measures (SMs) seek to contribute to the development and reform of education institutions and systems at national level in the Partner Countries. They can address issues linked to the reform of governance structures and systems (qualification systems, quality assurance, national laws, organisation, coordination, accreditation, evaluation and the policy of higher education systems etc.) or enhance the links between higher education and society.
Structural Measures include studies and research, conferences and seminars, training courses, policy advice and dissemination of information.
Two categories of Structural Measures may be supported:
National and regional priorities are defined in the Calls for Proposal.
In principle, the maximum possible duration of projects is 36 months for Structural Measures.
