Funding Source: European Commission

The European Commission has launched together with the governments of Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the Republic of Korea, a new multi-country call for proposals.

The objective of this call is to support international curriculum development projects that involve short term mobility between the EU and the partner ICI countries not necessarily related to award of a joint or dual/double degree. Consortia applying for projects under this call are formed by at least 3 institutions from the EU and 2 institutions from a given partner country. Selected consortia will set up a framework for student mobility whereby EU students will typically spend one semester in the partner country institution and vice versa with full recognition of the study period abroad by the home institution. Support includes mobility grants for students and members of the academic and administrative staff (“faculty”).

Funding

The budget available from the EU side for the co-financing of projects is estimated at EUR 2.5m. It is anticipated that funding will be provided for 4-5 EU-Australia projects, 2-3 EU-Japan projects, 1 EU-New Zealand project, and 1-2 EU-Korea projects. The maximum amount of funding on the EU side will be EUR 425,000 for a 3-year Joint Mobility project involving 4 or more EU partner institutions. The duration for Joint Mobility Projects is 3 years.

Deadline: 6 June 2008
