What is it?
European higher education institutions and individuals can work with partner institutions outside the EU through international mobility, joint degrees, and international cooperation partnerships, including capacity building and staff development in emerging and developing parts of the world.
What is it for?
Learning mobility and capacity building projects can improve skills, modernise higher education systems and institutions, and create better partnerships between the EU and education systems across the world. Opportunities given through Erasmus+, such as the high level Erasmus Mundus scholarships, can contribute to make Europe a more attractive study destination.
What are the opportunities for cooperation with partners outside the EU?
Who can take part?
Higher education institutions in Programme countries may apply. Master's students and doctoral candidates may apply individually for the relevant programmes.
The current Erasmus+ call for proposals and programme guide do not yet include two actions targeted at cooperation with partner countries- the international credit mobility and the capacity building action in higher education.
These two actions are funded from the EU external cooperation instruments, which will be launched at a later stage in 2014.
