The European Commission has announced the list of Capacity Building projects in the field of Higher Education that have been selected for funding under the Erasmus+ programme, Call 2020-EAC/A02/2019. This year, Jordan has won eight projects in the field of capacity building in higher education, with funding of nearly €4 million.
Jordan will cooperate with 12 European and four Arab countries, namely Algeria, Palestine, Lebanon and Egypt, involving 6 public universities. The projects, covering important topics and priorities for the Jordanian higher education sector, will allow universities in Jordan, Europe and some other Arab countries to work together. This work will be focused on the development of university curricula and study plans, participation in exchange visits of staff and students, and on the development of the higher education sector in these countries.
Erasmus+ is the European Union (EU) programme to support education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020.
