Deadline: 22 September 2017

The Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education (SIU) has announced a call for applications for funding of joint projects under the Eurasia Programme.

The overall aim of the programme is to contribute to renewal and internationalisation of higher education in the cooperating countries, as a means to provide a basis for political and economic reforms, stimulate to a sustainable development, increase the level of education in the population and increase respect for human rights.

Objectives

The programme shall lead to:

  • development of strong and lasting institutional partnerships through academic collaboration between higher education institutions in Norway and the cooperating countries
  • regional collaboration between higher education institutions in the cooperating countries
  • development and implementation of courses, study programmes and degrees that are considered relevant to the needs in the cooperating countries, inter alia, for the labour market
  • more research-based and internationally oriented education at the institutions in the cooperating countries, promoting a high level of student activity
  • improved links between higher education and the public and private sectors in the cooperating countries
  • improvements in university management, including implementation of reforms related to the Bologna process
  • more awareness, interest and knowledge about the cooperating countries at Norwegian higher education institutions
  • increased mobility of students and staff between the cooperating countries and Norway

Funds Available

Each project may be awarded up to NOK 300 000.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Applications must be submitted by the main partner institution in Norway.
  • The Norwegian institution must apply together with one main partner institution from the eligible partner countries: Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.
  • Applications may also involve other institutions in Norway and the partner countries as network partners. Research institutes and non-governmental organisations, public agencies or public and private enterprises in Norway or in the partner countries may also be involved as network partners.
  • Network partners not based in Norway or the cooperating countries will be judged on their contribution to goal achievements within the cooperating countries. Such partners may only play a minor and supporting role within a project.
