EDULINK II – Call for Proposals, Deadline: 30 July 2012 (27/03/2012)
A new call for proposals has been published under the ACP-EU Co-operation Programme in Higher Education (EDULINK II). The deadline for submission on proposals is 30 July 2012.
EDULINK is part of the EU-ACP strategy to boost higher education and research in ACP countries. Higher Education in ACP countries is under strong pressure to provide adequate skills and competencies trainings and develop stronger governance systems in order to support the increasing students demand, ease capacity constraints on basic education (quality issues caused by lack of properly trained teachers) and more generally to act as a catalyst for development.
The long-term objective of EDULINK II is the establishment of sustainable, collaborative partnerships between participating institutions and the promotion of networking between academic communities. Through these partnerships Higher Education Institutions will be able to share experiences and develop innovative approaches to reinforce capacities at institutional, administrative and academic level.
EDULINK II focuses on strengthening Higher Education Institutions active in the fields of energy and agriculture, which are essential for sustainable development. This new call with an amount of €23 million will finance more than 50 projects, that will benefit around 150 higher education institutions.
