Priorities and funded actions


  • To address the different state of advancement and challenges of HEIs located in eligible third countries not associated to the programme, enhance the impact of the programme and where relevant complement other sources of funding;
  • To introduce new approaches and initiatives in higher education, based on peer learning and transfer of experience and good practice affecting not only the institutions but also the society at large;


  • Priority 1: Address mismatches between the requirements of employers and the offer of higher education institutions and propose integral solutions to enhance better employability of students;
  • Priority 2:  Support HEIs to develop and implement the institutional reforms that will make them more democratic, inclusive, equitable and full-fledged constituents of the civil society.

Among financed actions

  • Development, testing and adaptation of innovative curricula in terms of content, structure and teaching/learning methods (including the use of open and flexible learning, virtual mobility, open educational resources, blended learning, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), etc.);
  • Introduction of Bologna-type reforms at institutional level;
  • Introducing practical training schemes, internships and study of real-life cases in business and industry, which are fully embedded in the curriculum, recognised and credited;
  • Introducing dual learning systems bridging tertiary studies with upper secondary VET as a mean to boost the employability of graduates;
  • Development and testing solutions to pressing social demands not addressed by the market and directed towards vulnerable groups in society;
  • Support the creation of centres, incubators for innovation, technology transfer and business start-ups, and the integration of education, research and innovation at institutional/regional/national level;
  • Exchanges of students, researchers, teaching staff and enterprise staff for a limited period;
  • Reform of governance and management systems and structures at institutional level (incl. quality assurance methods and systems, financial management and HEI autonomy, international relations, student services and counselling, career guidance, academic and research boards, etc.);
  • Development of strategies and tools for the internationalisation of HEIs (international openness of curricula, inter-institutional mobility schemes), and their capacity to network effectively in research, scientific and technological innovation (scientific cooperation and knowledge transfer, etc.).
