Call for proposals 2021 – Erasmus+ - Erasmus Mundus Design Measures ERASMUS-EDU-2021-EMJM-DESIGN Closed!


Erasmus Mundus Design Measures (EMDM) should enhance the capacities of universities to modernise and internationalise their curricula and teaching practices, pool resources, and for higher education systems to develop common mechanisms related to quality assurance, accreditation and recognition of degrees and credits. The support is also intended to explore and exploit the opportunities offered by the European Approach for Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes. Based on the high degree of jointness/integration among the participating institutions, such integrated transnational programmes should contribute to the integration and internationalisation of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).


The main objective of Erasmus Mundus Design Measures (EMDM) is to encourage the development of new, innovative, high-level integrated transnational study programmes at Master level. These design measures should involve:

  1. Erasmus+ Programme Countries,
  2. institutions, and/or
  3. thematic areas that are under-represented in Erasmus Mundus (see Erasmus Mundus Catalogue).
