Erasmus + Capacity Building



Within the framework of Erasmus+ CBHE the European Union supports the projects aimed at achieving long-term impact on universities and HE systems in the Partner Countries.

Capacity-Building Projects are transnational cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships primarily between higher education institutions (HEIs) from 34 Programme and more than 150 Partner Countries. The Programme Countries contributing financially to Erasmus+ are the 28 EU Member States plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Serbia, Turkey and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Kazakhstan is a Partner Country eligible to take part in CBHE component.
Capacity-Building Projects are aimed at using HEIs as a vector to deliver the knowledge requirements for economic development through job creation, better governance, increased entrepreneurship and mobility, and a stronger civil society. Enhancing management, governance and innovation capacities, and the internationalisation of HEIs as well as modernising education systems is one of the expected impacts of the action together with regional and cross regional cooperation.
There are two types of capacity-building projects in higher education: Joint Projects and Structural Projects.
