(15 June 2022) – Today, the Commission launched a new Erasmus+ call for proposals to pilot a joint European degree label and to facilitate deeper transnational cooperation between higher education institutions in Europe.
The joint European degree label would be issued as a complementary certificate to the qualifications obtained by students graduating from joint programmes delivered in the context of transnational cooperation between several higher education institutions.
The testing of institutionalised EU cooperation instruments, such as a possible European legal status for alliances, will support the piloting of existing European instruments to facilitate deeper, long-term and flexible transnational cooperation among higher education institutions.
The aim is to give alliances, on a voluntary basis, the latitude to act together, make common strategic decisions, experiment joint recruitment, design joint curricula or pool resources and human, technical, data, education, research and innovation capacities.
The deadline for applications’ submission is 6 October.
