Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships
The Strategic Partnerships action is an opportunity for KTH to seek funding for projects enhancing the quality and innovativeness of learning and teaching, developing new curricula, building bridges between the different sectors of education and fostering more intense forms of cooperation to achieve the modernisation objectives, including a better exploitation of open education resources. Strategic Partnerships is one of the actions within the EU programme Erasmus+.
Summary of action
Strategic Partnerships aim to support the development, transfer and/or implementation of innovative practices as well as the implementation of joint initiatives promoting cooperation, peer learning and exchanges of experience at European level.
Depending on the objectives and the composition of the Strategic Partnership, projects may be of two types; strategic partnerships supporting innovation or strategic partnerships supporting exchange of good practices.
Strategic Partnerships supporting innovation
Projects are expected to develop innovative outputs, and/or engage into intensive dissemination and exploitation activities of existing and newly produced products or innovative ideas. Applicants have the possibility to request a dedicated budget for Intellectual Outputs and Multiplier Events in order to directly answer to the innovation aspect of the Action. These types of projects are open to all fields of education, training and youth.
Strategic Partnerships supporting exchange of good practices
The primary goal is to allow organisations to develop and reinforce networks, increase their capacity to operate at transnational level, share and confront ideas, practices and methods. Selected projects may also produce tangible outputs and are expected to disseminate the results of their activities, although in a way that is proportional to the aim and scope of the project. These results and activities will be co-financed through the standard budget for project management and implementation. Strategic Partnerships relevant to the field of higher education will not support these types of projects.
Application and deadline
The application deadline is 24 March, 2020 (12:00 CET). The same consortium of partners can submit only one application and to one National Agency only.
