These projects, aimed at enhancing the capacity of higher education institutions, have been carefully chosen as part of the 2023 Erasmus+ call for proposals.

Elevating Educational Institutions:

The Erasmus+ capacity-building projects for higher education have a clear goal – to tackle the diverse challenges that our world is currently facing. These initiatives thrive on partnerships between organisations, typically higher education institutions, from the European Union (EU), associated European countries, and other parts of the world.

Addressing Global Challenges:

Educators and policymakers worldwide acknowledge the pivotal role of education in addressing the myriad challenges we confront – from the climate emergency to recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic and the imperative for re-skilling.

New Challenges Post-Russian Invasion:

  • Courses facilitating transformative change in health education in South-East Asia.
  • Establishing equity and equality laws for university studies in Latin America, with a special focus on vulnerable groups.
