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.
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
Each project may be awarded up to NOK 300 000.
- 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.
