Erasmus + Capacity Building Projects

Projects focusing on international cooperation that contribute to develop education in partner countries (most countries outside the EU, EFTA, Turkey and Macedonia).

Priorities of Erasmus + Capacity Building Projects:

  • Support modernisation and internationalisation of higher education in partner countries.
  • Increase access to higher education in partner countries.
  • Promote networking and intercultural awareness.

The projects may be directed at institutional or system level. In addition to Erasmus + priorities, the projects must be in accordance with national and / or regional priorities.

Who can participate?

  • The minimum requirement is two programme countries with at least one higher education institution from each country, and at least one partner country with a minimum of three higher education institutions.

  • There must be as many higher education institutions from partner countries as from the programme countries.

  • One of the partners coordinates the application and potentially the project.

Duration of the project

The projects can last for 2 or 3 years.
