Still open: Call for proposals on cooperation with EU surrounding countries

The second call for proposals under the programme Tempus IV invites the submission of cooperative projects under two action types - joint projects and structural measures – by partnerships comprised of higher education institutions, enterprises, ministries, NGOs, associations, etc., from the EU and the Tempus partner countries in the surrounding geographic area.

The overall objective of the programme is to contribute to an area of cooperation in the field of higher education. 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. The themes for cooperation are structured in the following three building blocks: Curricular Reform, Governance Reform and Higher Education and Society. Approximately 65 projects are estimated to be funded by this call.

Budget: EUR 53 million total, with individual grants from EUR 0.5 to 1.5 million
