The European Commission is currently inviting proposals for its Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme to promote sustainable development and ultimately contribute to poverty reduction by increasing the availability of trained and qualified high-level professional manpower in Africa.
The programme’s specific objective is to improve the skills and competences of students and staff through enhanced intra-African mobility.
The programme aims to-
- contribute to the improvement of the quality of higher education through the promotion of internationalisation and harmonisation of programmes and curricula within participating institutions;
- enable students, academics and staff to benefit linguistically, culturally and professionally from the experience gained in the context of mobility to another African country.
- The overall indicative amount made available under this Call for proposals is estimated at EUR 9 900 000 and should allow around 350 mobility flows.
- Each grant will amount to between EUR 1 000 000 (minimum grant size) and EUR 1 500 000 (maximum grant size).
- The present Call is open to Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). Individuals will benefit from the mobility activities planned by these HEIs.
- The partnership will be composed of the applicant/coordinating HEI, the partner HEIs, the
- EU technical partner and the associated partners where relevant.
