Erasmus Mundus Design Measures


This call is part of the Erasmus Mundus action.

The Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters and Erasmus Mundus Design Measures represent two independent lots:
Lot 1: Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters (EMJM)
Lot 2: Erasmus Mundus Design Measures (EMDM).

The main objective of the Erasmus Mundus Design Measures is to encourage the development of new, innovative,
high-level integrated transnational study programmes at Master level.

Detailed Call Description

Erasmus Mundus Design Measures should enhance the capacities of universities to modernise and internationalise their curricula and teaching practices, pool resources, and for higher education systems to develop common mechanisms related to quality assurance, accreditation and recognition of degrees and credits. The support is also intended to explore and exploit the opportunities offered by the European Approach for Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes. Based on the high degree of jointness/integration among the participating institutions, such integrated transnational programmes should contribute to the integration and internationalisation of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).

These design measures should involve Erasmus Mundus under-represented
(a) EU Member States and third countries associated to the Programme, and/or
(b) institutions from these countries, and/or
(c) thematic areas (see Erasmus Mundus Catalogue).
