Erasmus+: Capacity-building projects in the field of higher education’ build on the success of the former Alfa, Edu-link and Tempus programmes and aim to:

  • Support the modernisation, accessibility and internationalisation of higher education in the Partner Countries;
  • Promote cooperation between Programme Countries and eligible Partner Countries (as well as among eligible Partner Countries themselves);
  • Promote voluntary convergence with EU developments in higher education;
  • Promote people-to-people contacts, intercultural awareness and understanding.

Please note that an E-tutorial focusing on the international dimension of the Programme (including the Capacity Building in Higher Education action) is available and provides core information about the actions targeted to Higher Education Institutions (and their staff and students) based in Partner Countries outside the European Union.
