Is your Higher Education Institution interested in Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education (Key Action 203) funding?

This Key Action funding enables UK HEIs to run collaborative projects with international HEIs and other organisations - either as the lead or as a partner. The focus is on innovation and cooperation. Funding can be used to support activities such as:

  • Developing, testing and implementing innovative approaches and practices for study programmes, students, staff and organisations;
  • Facilitating the recognition and certification of skills and competences;
  • Training, teaching and learning activities - such as intensive study programmes, blended mobility of students, joint staff training events, and teaching and training assignments.

At least €8 million is available to UK HEIs in 2019, one million more than was awarded last year.

In 2017 and 2018, 100 per cent of all UK-led KA203 applications that passed the quality threshold received funding from the UK NA.

The deadline to apply is Thursday 21 March 11am (UK time).
