EKA may again apply for ERASMUS+ international credit mobility grants (all countries besides the EU member states or associated partners). The grant application needs to be project-based, therefore, the more detailed answers you can think of to the questions below, the higher EKA’s chances to receive funding.
Please send information to firstname.lastname@example.org due January 21, 2020 about which current partners or new ones you wish to cooperate with, if you intend to conduct students and-or teacher/staff exchanges, why the selected partners are important and what else you wish to stress regarding desired cooperation. Basing on the information you send us, the International Office will compose an application on the name of the whole EKA. (E.g, if you’ve planned to conduct a workshop X in 2020 week Y with the desired partner’s teacher AB and what new information it brings to your staff and students, the more solid application I can compose).
This information may come in Estonian or in English. Be aware that the competition for these funds is tight. For all universities in Estonia, there’s roughly 900 000 EUR available annually. In 2019/20 application EKA received 135 930 EUR for cooperation with USA, Canada, Israel etc.
Try to think and answer as precisely as possible:
1. Relevance of the strategy. Explain why the planned mobility project is relevant to the internationalisation strategy of the higher education institutions involved (both in the Programme and Partner Country). Justify the proposed type(s) of mobility (students for studies/ students for traineeships/ staff for teaching/ staff for training). (7000 tm max)
2. Thematic focus of the partnership. You may select a maximum of 3 subject areas that are relevant to your project with this Partner Country.
3. Quality of project design and implementation. Present the different phases of the mobility project and summarise what partner organisations plan in terms of selection of participants, the support provided to them and the recognition of their mobility period (in particular in the Partner Country). Bear in mind that certain flows may not be eligible.Please consult the Programme Guide: https://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/resources_en to know which limitations apply.
4. Impact and dissemination.
