The European Commission have launched their latest round of funding to support the cooperation of higher education institutions across Europe. Erasmus Mundus is a cooperation and mobility programme that aims to enhance the quality of European higher education and to promote dialogue and understanding between people and cultures through cooperation with third countries. In addition, it contributes to the development of human resources and the international cooperation capacity of higher education institutions in third countries by increasing mobility between the European Union and these countries. Priorities for this call are for the development of Erasmus Mundus partnerships for curriculum based exchanges of staff and students and the promotion of European Higher Education.
The call deadline is 15th April 2013. Further information can be found here http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/erasmus_mundus/funding/2013/call_eacea_38_12_en.php. Please contact the External Projects Team if you are interested (firstname.lastname@example.org). Staffordshire University has prior experience of success in this funding stream and we are keen to support new applications.
