European call for proposal: Tempus IV
Reform of higher education through international university cooperation
Deadline: 23rd February 2012

The purpose of this call for proposals is to promote multilateral cooperation among higher education institutions, authorities and organisations from EU Member States and partner countries with the focus on the reform and modernisation of higher education.

Eligible actions:
The two principal instruments for cooperation through this Tempus call for proposals are:
- Joint Projects: projects with a ‘bottom-up’ approach aiming at modernisation and reform on an insti­tutional (university) level. Joint Projects aim at transferring knowledge between universities, organisations
and institutions from the EU and from the partner countries as well as between partner country entities as appropriate,
- Structural Measures: projects seeking to contribute to the development and reform of higher education systems in partner countries, as well as to enhance their quality and relevance and to increase their
voluntary convergence with EU developments. Structural Measures will be interventions designed to support structural reform of higher education systems and the strategic framework development at national level.

Under this call, national and multi-country projects can be financed
