The EU programme Erasmus+ includes a strong international dimension in the field of higher education and supports several actions targeting cooperation between Europe and other regions in the world. Especially Erasmus+ Key Action 2 “Capacity Building in Higher Education” supports the modernisation of higher education in EU’s partner countries in the world.

During the networking seminar participants will be informed about funding opportunities in Erasmus+ with a focus on Key Action 2 “Capacity Building in the field of Higher Education” (CBHE). The conference will also inform on Erasmus+ mobility opportunitiesErasmus Mundus Master’s programmesJean Monnet Actions.
