Cooperation with North America and Asia-Pacific

The European Commission continues to think and act globally in terms of higher education cooperation. The Commission is consolidating its enduring cooperation with the US and Canada, by initiating a new round of projects involving higher education and training institutions, within both Europe and North America. In addition, 11 joint curriculum development and student mobility projects, based on the model of Erasmus-like initiatives successfully implemented with the US and Canada since 1995,  were launched with Australia, Japan, New Zealand, and as a premiere, with South Korea.

The projects are jointly funded and monitored by the European Commission and the government representatives from the partner countries in North America and Asia-Pacific. The total financial contribution of the Commission is rising to EUR 9.2 million. The 35 projects launched this year comprise 189 higher education institutions and should facilitate for more than 2 000 student exchanges.
