Erasmus+ call for proposals


Erasmus+ call for proposals (EACEA/35/2018) which intends to support the Bologna reforms in higher education is recently launched. The deadline for applications is on 23 October 2018.

The goal of the Erasmus+ call is to support implementation of commitments made within the Bologna Process (Strand 1 of the call). This will be done through transnational peer support activities targeting any member country of the European Higher Education Area, contributing to at least one of the three peer groups established under the Bologna Follow-Up Group. Three 'Bologna peer groups' will do the following.

These transnational peer support activities (for example peer learning, peer counselling, peer review etc.), should involve both national authorities and stakeholders at national level (higher education institutions, academics, students etc.) and, where relevant, consultative members of the Bologna Process.

Partner countries will only be able to participate as partners in the projects selected under the open EACEA/35/2018 call. Applications will have to be submitted by Erasmus+ programme country institutions.
