Capacity-building projects in the field of higher education are transnational cooperation projects, based on multilateral partnerships, primarily between higher education institutions from EU Member states or countries associated to the Programme and third countries not associated to the Programme.
hey support the design of high-level and integrated study programmes, at master level. Joint programmes are designed and delivered by an international partnership of HEIs. Additionally, they may involve other educational and/or non-educational partners with specific expertise and interest in the area of study.
Erasmus Mundus Design Measures encourage HEIs to develop new, innovative and highly integrated master programmes by facilitating the setup of such international partnerships. EMDM aim to involve EU Member States and third countries associated to the Programme (previously called Programme countries), institutions, and/or thematic areas that are somehow under-represented in Erasmus Mundus.
Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters are high-level and integrated study programmes, at master level. They are designed and delivered by an international partnership of higher education institutions. An EMJM involves at least three HEIs from three different countries, of which at least two must be EU Member States and third countries associated to the Programme (previously called Programme Countries).
Partnerships for cooperation are transnational projects designed to develop and share innovative practices and promote cooperation, peer learning, and exchanges of experiences in the fields of education, training, and youth.
Alliances for Innovation aim to boost Europe’s innovation capacity through stronger cooperation and knowledge flow among higher education, vocational education and training (both initial and continuous), businesses and the broader socio-economic environment, including research.
They also aim to encourage new skills and address skills mismatches by designing new curricula for higher education and vocational education and training, and supporting the development of a sense of initiative and entrepreneurial mind-sets in the EU.
I am Lirim Mehmetaj, a student from Kosovo at the University of Prishtina. Last winter semester, and currently this summer semester, I am studying at the University of Salzburg. By coming and being part of a new living and studying environment it was pretty interesting, but also challenging and very demanding. Referring to life in Salzburg, you can easily find yourself traveling into times because Salzburg indeed is a very old city filled with culture. Small and narrow alleys, paved with stones at the old part of the town, are impressive. Moreover, University is filled with students of different countries from all around the world, therefore every new acquaintance, except a new friendship is also a lesson which makes you know and understand better the diversity and multiculturalism. Erasmus is a great opportunity for Kosovar students to study and travel abroad. It is awesome that this kind of program gave me the chance to meet the world and meet new experiences, because I as a Kosovar citizen, cannot always travel freely. It is great that the EU made it possible for me to study with Erasmus. The program helps you not in just fulfilling your dreams, but also, living beyond them. Therefore, it is an extraordinary experience which changes your life forever.
