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.

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.
