Industrialised Countries Instrument Education Cooperation Programme (ICI ECP)
Call for proposals 2008
Application deadline: 06 June 2008
The European Commission has launched together with the governments of
Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the Republic of Korea (in alphabetical
order) a new multi-country call for proposals.
The objective of this call is to support international curriculum
development projects that involve short term mobility between the EU and
the partner ICI countries not necessarily related to award of a
joint or dual/double degree.
Consortia applying for projects under this call are formed by at
least 3 institutions from the EU and 2 institutions from a given partner
country. Selected consortia will set up a framework for student mobility
whereby EU students will typically spend one semester in the partner
country institution and vice versa with full recognition of the study
period abroad by the home institution. Support includes mobility grants
for students and members of the academic and administrative staff (“faculty”).
The budget available from the EU side for the co-financing of
projects is estimated at 2,5 million Euros. It is anticipated that
funding will be provided for 4-5 EU-Australia projects, 2-3 EU-Japan
projects, 1 EU-New Zealand project, and 1-2 EU-Korea projects.
The maximum amount of funding on the EU side will be EUR 425,000 for
a 3-year Joint Mobility project involving 4 or more EU partner
institutions. The duration for Joint Mobility Projects is 3 years.
