International Relations and Study abroad Service
5 December 2022
The national agency Movetia held a webinar to launch the call for projects for the "Funding Programmes for Cooperation Projects 2023." on Thursday, 24 November.
In particular, the International Programme and the Swiss Programme for Erasmus+ were presented.
The International Programme supports educational cooperation projects between Swiss universities and institutions (at least one) from all over the world (Europe and beyond).
Funded projects can last a maximum of 24 months and can start between 1 August 2023 and 31 October 2023. The application deadline is 31 March 2023.
The other programme, the Swiss programme for Erasmus+, supports institutional cooperation between Switzerland and Erasmus+ countries; from 2023, projects will also be funded worldwide. The three types of programmes that are supported are Cooperation partnerships to promote innovation in the Swiss education system at the European level, Alliances for Innovation to strengthen strategic collaboration between those involved in higher education and vocational training, and European universities, partnerships of excellence that aim at wide-ranging institutional and transnational collaboration (e.g. the creation of European inter-university campuses). Information documents, examples of funded projects, application forms as well as call deadlines are presented on the website of the national agency:
