2023 Erasmus+ European Universities Call for Proposals

Publication date
September 30, 2022
January 31, 2023
Short description

The European Universities’ work encompasses all higher education institutions’ missions of education, research, innovation and service to society. These alliances have diverse models of systemic, structural and sustainable transnational cooperation which reinforce the quality, performance, attractiveness and international competitiveness of higher education across Europe, for the benefit of their students and staff, while promoting our democratic values.

The Erasmus+ 2023 European Universities call is open to the participation of higher education institutions from all Western Balkans economies as full partners in the alliances.

Also, a Seal of Excellence will be awarded to proposals which have been assessed and scored as high quality (above 80 points) but that cannot be funded under Erasmus+ due to lack of available budget.  The seal is a quality label that recognises the quality of the concerned proposals and helps them seek alternative funding at national level.

Structure of the call

The call is structured around two topics:

Topic 1: intensification of prior deep institutional transnational cooperation

This call topic will provide support for already existing deep institutional transnational cooperation alliances including, but not limited to, the European Universities alliances selected under the 2020 Erasmus+ call for proposals.

The aim is to build upon the institutional cooperation achieved so far and to further deepen, intensify and expand the effectiveness of this existing cooperation in order to progress towards the long-term vision of the ‘European Universities’. New higher education institutions have the opportunity to join these existing alliances as full partners.

Topic 2: development of new deep institutional transnational cooperation

This call topic will provide support for applicants wishing to establish new deep institutional transnational cooperation in a new ‘European Universities’ alliance.

How to apply
