Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters


This call is part of the Erasmus Mundus action.

Τα Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters και Erasmus Mundus Design Measures αντιπροσωπεύουν δύο ανεξάρτητα Lots:
Lot 1: Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters (EMJM)
Lot 2: Erasmus Mundus Design Measures (EMDM).
The EMJM aims to enhance the attractiveness and excellence of European higher education in the world and attract talent to Europe, through a combination of:
(i) institutional academic cooperation to showcase European excellence in higher education, and
(ii) individual mobility for all students taking part in the EMJM, with EU-funded scholarships for the best
students applying.

Detailed Call Description

The EMJM supports high-level integrated transnational study programmes at Master level delivered by an
international consortium of higher education institutions (HEIs) from different countries worldwide and, where
relevant, other educational and/or non-educational partners with specific expertise and interest in the concerned study areas/professional domains.

EMJMs are programmes of excellence and should contribute to the integration and internationalisation of the
European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The specificity of EMJMs lies in the high degree of jointness/integration
among the participating institutions and the excellence of their academic content.

Eligibility For Participation Notes

A participating organisation can be any public or private organisation, with its affiliated entities (if any) established in an EU Member State or third country associated to the Programme or in a third country not associated to the Programme that contributes directly and actively to the delivery of the EMJM.
Exception: organisations from Belarus (Region 2) are not eligible to participate in this action.

HEIs established in an EU Member State or third country associated to the Programme must hold a valid Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE). An ECHE is not required for participating HEIs from third countries not associated to the Programme, but they will have to commit to its principles.

At application stage full partner HEIs must demonstrate to have fulfilled the external Quality Assurance (QA) requirements of their jurisdiction (e.g. accreditation or evaluation) for the joint programme. This can result either (i) from having successfully implemented the European Approach for Quality Assurance of Joint Programmes (if national legislation allows), (ii) or be based on a specific accreditation/evaluation of the joint programme, (iii) or of each national component on the basis of which the EMJM is composed.

Additionally the EMJM study programme may also benefit from the involvement of associated partners (optional). These organisations contribute indirectly to the implementation of specific tasks/activities and/or support the dissemination and sustainability of the EMJM. Such contribution may for example take the form of knowledge and skills transfer, the provision of complementary courses or backing possibilities for secondment or placement. For eligibility and contractual management aspects, they are not considered as beneficiaries of the Programme funding.
