These projects aim to support various activities which, though not eligible under the main ERASMUS programme, will clearly contribute to achieving its objectives.
Projects should be innovative, self-standing and should aim at:
- having a clear relevance to the European Modernisation Agenda of Higher Education and raising awareness of relevant target groups or the general public on the importance of European cooperation in the field of higher education more generally;
- enhancing the implementation of mobility by reaching a substantial part of the students (for example broad scale projects for promotion of mobility, for boosting mobility in subject areas that are currently under-represented in mobility, for coping with problems like recognition of studies during the mobility period);
- focusing on dissemination of project results (Dissemination is normally part of all projects funded by the Lifelong Learning Programme. An Accompanying Measures project may only get funding for dissemination if the proposed activities go beyond of what is expected from the integral dissemination activities of any centralised project. The applications must clearly describe the activities undertaken as part of the dissemination plans of the past centralised projects, and demonstrate how the proposed activities bring added value to what has already been done);
- fostering trans-sectoral synergies between the actions of the Lifelong Learning Programme on precise themes;
- implementing activities specifically concerning aspects of transversal policies in which the programme is called upon to play a part, including in particular, the promotion of equality between women and men, the integration of persons with disabilities and other people with special needs, and the promotion of intercultural education and the fight against racism;
- carrying out other activities focussing on specific themes, target groups or contexts, as justified by the needs of the current educational situation in higher education in the participating countries.
