Capacity Building in the field of Higher Education: Strand 1 – Fostering access to cooperation in higher education

Summary

Strand1 is under the ”Capacity Building in Higher Education (CBHE)” action.

The CBHE action, supports international cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships between organisations active in the field of higher education.
Strand1 is designed to attract less experienced HEIs and small-scale actors to the CBHE action to facilitate access to newcomer organisations.

Detailed Call Description

The partnerships under this Strand should act as a first step for HEIs and organisations with a smaller operational capacity located in third countries not associated to the programme to access and increase means to reach out to people with fewer opportunities. Projects should establish partnerships to develop cooperation ideas as well as to facilitate transfer of know-how, experience and good practices, fostering access to capacity building opportunities and improving social inclusion and the access of students/staff with fewer opportunities to a qualitative higher education offer. In particular, these projects will particularly focus on:

  • HEIs from least developed countries not associated to the Erasmus + programme;
  • HEIs located in remote regions/areas of third countries not associated to Erasmus + programme;
  • Newcomers or less experienced HEIs and Faculties from third countries not associated to the programme;
  • Involvement of students and staff with fewer opportunities

The proposed activities and project results should have a clear added-value for the targeted beneficiaries:

  • Activities aiming at enhancing the management/administrative capacity of the targeted HEIs
  • Activities aiming at ensuring high quality and relevant education
  • Activities aiming at increasing the accessibility of the students/staff with fewer opportunities

This Strand will finance small-scale projects to reduce the internationalisation gap among HEIs from eligible third countries not associated to the programme, from the same country or Region.
