Academic Cooperation Association

If you are searching for an international organisation highly involved and with a strong reputation in international cooperation in higher education, then you have certainly reached the right homepage. The Academic Cooperation Association (ACA) is a federation of national organisations from Europe and beyond, which all fund and encourage the internationalisation of their higher education systems. Acting as an advocate of internationalisation world-wide, ACA offers these actors a European multilateral platform for cooperation, the development of long-lasting partnerships, and innovation in higher education. ACA stands for many things, but above all, it is an expert centre, producing studies and evaluations, organising international seminars and conferences, and providing information on new developments in European and global higher education.



ACA’s activities are co-funded for the period 2018-2020 by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. The website reflects the views of ACA only, and the European Commission cannot be held responsible for any use which may be made of the information contained herein.
