Capacity Building in the field of Higher Education
Capacity-Building Projects (more details in 2 page flyer) are transnational cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships primarily between higher education institutions (HEIs) from Programme and more than 150 eligible Partner Countries. The 33 Programme Countries contributing financially to ERASMUS+ are the EU Member States + Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
Capacity-Building Projects are aimed at using HEIs as a vector to deliver the knowledge requirements for economic development through job creation, better governance, increased entrepreneurship and mobility, and a stronger civil society. Enhancing management, governance and innovation capacities, and the internationalisation of HEIs as well as modernising education systems is one of the expected impacts of the action together with regional and cross regional cooperation.
There are two types of projects aiming to impact the higher education institutions (Joint Projects) and/or education systems (Structural Projects). Furthermore for a limited number of successful projects there is also funding foreseen for a specific mobility strand.
The project proposals must clearly address the national/regional priorities defined for the Partner Countries (see on the EACEA website: http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/erasmus-plus/actions/key-action-2-cooperation-for-innovation-and-exchange-good-practices/capacity-0_en).
