News archive - Modernisation of higher education assisted by EU, Kosovo*

Six projects will be implemented in Kosovo* as part of the EU Programme for Higher Education - Tempus IV. It facilitates exchange between universities across Europe and provides means for Kosovo* higher education institutions to build relationships and partnerships with other European institutions. Kosovo* education institutions, public and private have become very successful at accessing the Tempus funds. The programme aims to assist in modernisation and development of new programmes, curricula and management.

The latest phase of the programme, Tempus IV, started in 2008 with an annual budget of around 50 million euro. Individual projects receive funding of between 0.5 and 1.5 million euro. All conditions and criteria to apply for Tempus funds are detailed in the annual call for proposals (available in English, French and German).

The EU’s Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) is responsible for the management of all Tempus actions, under the supervision of the European Commission. More information about Tempus: Tempus on the EACEA website.

Erasmus Mundus Partnership is a complementary programme that funds higher education student and staff exchanges and visits between European universities and universities from other countries.
