Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme

European Programme Erasmus+

The Call for Proposals EACEA/05/2017 “Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme” has been published by the European Commission in the framework of the Pan-African Programme.

 

The aim of the current EACEA/05/2017 “Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Pan-African Programme, is to contribute to the improvement of the quality of higher education through the promotion of internationalisation and harmonisation of programmes and curricula within participating institutions and to enable students, academics and staff to benefit linguistically, culturally and professionally from the experience gained in the context of mobility to another African country.

 

The general objective of the current EACEA/05/2017 “Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Pan-African Programme, is to promote sustainable development and ultimately contribute to poverty reduction by increasing the availability of trained and highly qualified professional manpower in Africa.

 

Specific objectives of the current EACEA/05/2017 “Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Pan-African Programme, are:

- improving the skills and competences of students and staff through enhanced intra-African mobility;

- strengthening cooperation between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Africa;

- increasing access to quality education of African students to undertake postgraduate studies in the African continent; - enhancing the international cooperation capacity of HEIs in Africa through mobility of staff (academic and administrative).

 

Eligible applicants within the current EACEA/05/2017 “Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Pan-African Programme, are HEIs registered in Africa that provide courses at postgraduate level (master level and/or doctorate degree) of higher education leading to a qualification recognized by the competent authorities in their own country. Only HEIs accredited by relevant national authorities in Africa are eligible. Branches of HEIs from outside Africa are not eligible. The technical partner has to be a HEI from one of the EU Member States having been awarded an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education.

 

Transnational projects within the current EACEA/05/2017 “Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Pan-African Programme, must to be submitted by a partnership constitued of minimum four and maximum six African HEIs as partners (including the applicant) and one technical partner from the EU.

 

Eligible activities supported by the current EACEA/05/2017 “Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Pan-African Programme, are: organisation and implementation of student and staff mobility in high quality master and doctoral programmes, as well as the provision of education/training and other services to foreign students and teaching/ training and research assignments and other services to staff from the countries covered by the project.

 

The overall budget of the current EACEA/05/2017 “Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Pan-African Programme, is estimated at EUR 9 900 000 and should allow around 350 mobility flows. Each grant will amount to between EUR 1 000 000 (minimum grant size) and EUR 1 400 000 (maximum grant size). The EU grant is based on the application of lump-sums for the organisation of mobility and unit costs for the implementation of mobility.

 

The deadline for submitting proposals in the framework of the EACEA/05/2017 “Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Pan-African Programme, is 2 May 2017.
