The European Commission are encouraging Higher Education institutions to work in partnership with businesses on innovative projects that address teaching and learning. The projects are expected to generate long term partnerships which develop entrepreneurship.
The funding is called Knowledge Alliances and is part of the Erasmus+ scheme. Although the deadline for 2014 has recently closed, it takes time to develop a strong consortium and project idea. The External Projects Team is encouraging staff to get thinking on project ideas for 2015. To help have we have created a factsheet giving an overview of the fund.
It is expected that the 2015 deadlines will be in March/April, with calls coming out around November 2014.
The External Projects Team can help you to find project partners and can help develop project ideas. Anyone who is interested should contact the team on email@example.com
