Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships can foster long-term cooperation to enhance language skills and sport partnerships. Learn how higher education institutions, relevant key players and the wider society have become involved in exciting projects!

Transnational cooperation projects called ‘Strategic Partnerships’ (SPs) offer the opportunity to develop ideas and concepts between HEIs. SPs work on developing and implementing innovative practices relating to:

  • new curricula
  • courses/modules
  • testing and integrating a variety of study modes (distance, part-time, modular learning).

They also help foster strategic collaboration between learning providers, local/regional authorities, enterprises and other players (e.g. SMEs, youth organisations, local and regional authorities, social partners, European networks, etc.).

Since 2014, the Erasmus+ programme has supported more than 1,000 strategic partnerships that cover a wide range of subjects.

In the area of sport, the project Relevance in practice placements, inclusion of marginalized people, coordinated by the Oslo and Akershus University College, aims to increase the knowledge among physiotherapy and sports students of how to work with and for marginalised groups.

When it comes to language skills, 31 language-related projects have been selected so far in the field of Higher Education..A good example is CoMoViWo Communication in Mobile and Virtual Work, a project coordinated by the Turku University of Applied Sciences that aims to define the skills needed in virtual and mobile work in a multicultural environment. For people interested in digital literacy, read more about the European Multimodal and Digital Education for Language Learning project coordinated by the Università degli studi di Messina.
