Call closed

The deadline for this call was extended until 23 April 2020 at 12:00 PM CET.

All EU-member countries and Norway, Liechtenstein, Iceland, Serbia, Turkey and Macedonia

Partner countries:
Other countries ( as stated in programme guide )

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.

Examples of previously granted projects

REDEEM: Reforming Dual Degree Programmes for Employability and Enhanced Academic Cooperation

The scope of the project is to conduct a comparative study in a number of EU Member States on the added value created by double degree programmes. For the specific purposes of this project and for a matter of clarity and simplification, this general term includes all the possible variants of educational degree programmes carried out jointly by two or more institutions with an embedded mandatory mobility component (Dual Degree Programmes, Joint Degree Programmes, Multiple Degree Programmes, etc.) in Science and Technology from the point of view of the different actors involved in the process (programme directors, administrators, students, employers) and with a particular focus on the employability and personal development of the students participating in these programmes.

INGDIVS: Increasing Gender Diversity in STEM

This project will specifically address the lack of gender diversity in STEM programs and careers by constructing a multi-dimensional profiling tool, which allows potential students to match their perceived skills, abilities and interests to those of existing STEM students and successful graduates in the field. Much research has been done on the reasons for this imbalance, with a general consensus that a resolution is highly challenging, requiring multifaceted action from a very wide range of stakeholders. The scale of the problem and the complex and interacting factors involved, provide significant challenges in the design, implementation and assessment of remedial initiatives.
