Capacity building


Funding is available for joint projects that aim to develop new courses, curricula, education centres, higher education administration, or national education reforms in partner countries. Projects may also aim to contribute to modernising higher education and to the democratic development in partner countries.  

Applications can be submitted together with partners from about 150 countries worldwide. Applications for national projects must include one eligible Partner Country and at least two Programme Countries. Applications for multi-country projects, on the other hand, must include at least two eligible Partner Countries and at least two Programme Countries. All projects must include at least as many Partner Country higher education institutions as there are Programme Country higher education institutions.

Application deadline

The University's vice-chancellor must sign the application. In order for the vice-chancellor to be able to sign the application, the head of department and the dean must sign the supporting document together with the project manager.

External Relations takes care of the process to obtain the vice-chancellor's signature. Therefore, the supporting document must be completed, signed and sent to fredrik [dot] klintberg [at] er [dot] lu [dot] se by 17 January 2019 (the deadline within the EU is 7 February 2019).

If you submit your documents too late, we cannot guarantee your documents will be signed in time.
