Capacity building in the field of higher education Strand 3


Erasmus+ Programme

Deadline: Thursday 16th of February, 2023

The Capacity Building in Higher Education (CBHE) action supports international cooperation projects based on multilateral partnerships between organisations active in the field of higher education. It supports the relevance, quality, modernisation and responsiveness of higher education in third countries not associated to the Programme for socio-economic recovery, growth and prosperity and reacting to recent trends, in particular economic globalisation, but also the recent decline in human development, fragility, and rising social, economic and environmental inequalities exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The action is expected to contribute to the overarching priorities of the European Commission:
  • Green Deal (develop competences in sustainability relevant sectors, green sectorial skills strategies, and methodologies)
  • Digital transformation (development and uptake of digital skills)
  • Integration of migrants (promote mobility and recognition of degrees and credentials)
  • Governance, peace, security and human development (strengthen active citizenship)
  • Sustainable growth and jobs (build skills for life and work),
  • as well as to the external dimension of EU internal policies in the field of education. It will support a successful green and sustainable global economic recovery in the third countries not associated to the Programme, linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement.
The activities and outcomes of CBHE projects must be geared to benefit the eligible third countries not associated to the Programme, their higher education institutions (HEI) and systems.
