Erasmus+ capacity building

Capacity building projects (Erasmus +, Key Action 2) are transnational cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships between higher education institutions (HEI) in Europe and outside of Europe. They aim 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. The duration is 2 or 3 years with a budget between 500.000 and 1.000.000 Euro for staff, travel, accommodation, equipment and subcontracting.
