ATLANTIS programme is focusing on implementing joint or dual transatlantic undergraduate degrees within consortia of higher education and training institutions
. The general objectives of the programme are to promote mutual understanding between the peoples of the European Union and the United States of America including broader knowledge of their languages, cultures and institutions and to improve the quality of human resource development in both the European Union and the United States of America.
The newly published EU-US Atlantis call for proposals 2010
covers three types of actions
Action 1 — Transatlantic Degree Consortia Projects - provides support for consortia of EU and US higher education institutions to implement dual/double or joint degree programs referred to under the present call as ‘Transatlantic Degrees’. Support includes mobility grants for students and members of the academic and administrative staff (‘faculty’).
Action 2 — Excellence in Mobility Projects - provides funding for international curriculum development projects that involve short-term transatlantic mobility not directly related to the award of a joint or dual/double degree. Support includes mobility grants for students and members of the academic and administrative staff (‘faculty’).
Action 3 — Policy-oriented Measures - provides support to multilateral EU-US projects and activities designed to enhance collaboration in the higher education and vocational training field.
