The outcomes of Erasmus+ 2023 call for the European Universities project, which supports coalitions of institutions of higher learning. These European University alliances are bringing together a new generation of Europeans who are able to study and work in different European countries, different languages, spanning sectors, and academic subjects. These collaborations increase the level of international competition for European higher education institutions by enabling students to get degrees by combining their studies in several European countries.
With the addition of seven new European Universities partnerships as a result of today’s findings, there are now a total of 50 coalitions that encompass more than 430 higher education institutions across 35 countries. The entire European Union, as well as Iceland, Turkey, Norway, Serbia, Montenegro, Albania, North Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, are included in this group.
The unique international and creative educational offer available to these schools’ students enables them to develop critical competencies and abilities for the future.
Furthermore, through working with nearly 1700 connected partners among NGOs, corporations, and local and regional authorities, the alliances of the 50 European Universities bring widespread innovation to the regions of Europe.
Each alliance will get a budget of up to €14.4 million for a maximum of four years from the record-breaking Erasmus+ program’s overall budget of €402.2 million.
The 2023 request offered the chance for higher education institutions from Western Balkans countries that were not enrolled in the Erasmus+ program to take part as full partners. Higher education institutions from Montenegro, Herzegovina, Bosnia and Albania have joined the project in addition to those from Serbia and North Macedonia as a result.
