Call for proposals TEMPUS IV for the reform of higher education through international university cooperation DG EAC/01/09 Closed!

Objectives

The European Commission launches a call for proposals DG EAC/01/09, under the Trans-European cooperation scheme for higher education Tempus IV, for the reform of higher education through international university cooperation, whose main objective will be to contribute towards facilitating cooperation in the field of higher education among Member States of the European Union (EU) and partner countries in the surrounding area.

In particular, the programme will help promote voluntary convergence with EU developments in the field of higher education deriving from the Lisbon agenda and the Bologna process.

Actions

The two principal instruments for cooperation through this Tempus call for proposals are:

  •  Joint Projects: projects with a ‘bottom-up’ approach aiming at modernisation and reform at institutional (university) level. Joint Projects aim at modernising university curricula and governance through a transfer of knowledge between universities, organisations and institutions from the EU and from the partner countries as well as between partner country entities as appropriate.
  • Structural Measures: projects which seek to contribute to the development and reform of higher education systems in partner countries, as well as to enhance their quality and relevance, and to increase their convergence with EU developments. Structural Measures will concern interventions designed to support structural reform of higher education systems and strategic framework development at national level.

The Community provisional funding available for the call for proposals is:

  • 53,00 Million EUR (Annual budget for 2009)
