European Commission. A Tempus Study. The main achievements of the Tempus programme in the Southern Mediterranean 2002-2013. 2013. ISSN: 1831-9726. Pages: 85.
Knowing how exactly the allocation of development funding and cooperation with EU neighbouring countries works is not self-evident. The European Commission’s recent publication on the main achievements of the Tempus programme in the Southern Mediterranean gives interesting and useful insights on how the Tempus programme has been implemented in the European Union’s southern neighbourhood states. Tempus is an external cooperation programme intended to support the modernisation of the higher education systems of the EU’s neighbouring states. This publication gives above all a clear picture of what has happened since the Tempus programme’s implementation in the Southern Mediterranean states in 2002 by highlighting main achievements and the role of stakeholders contributing to this development. Activities include increased mobility between academic staff, curriculum reform, assistance in the development of new fields of study, restructuration of courses along the Bologna model, reform of university governance and management and much more. Statistical data as well as an overview of the main results and achievements by country are likewise provided.
