Strong success for Erasmus+ collaborative training projects
Since the start of the academic year, numerous training projects involving the University of Bordeaux have been awarded European funding. Of these, eight are collaborative projects, of which three are coordinated by the university and its lecturer-researchers.
For the University of Bordeaux, the 2022 Erasmus+ call for projects was a successful one, with a great deal of funding obtained for the Bordeaux campus: Jean Monnet Centres of Excellence, Erasmus Mundus Design Measures, Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters, etc. Among these success stories, 8 European and international collaborative training projects have been selected out of the 12 projects submitted, 3 of which are coordinated by the University of Bordeaux.
In order to encourage and assist its academic community in the development, submission and implementation of collaborative training projects, the University of Bordeaux offers a support system via the European and International Projects Department within the International Office. Support varies according to the project manager's needs: identification of funding opportunities, advice for writing up the non-scientific elements, coordination and administration of budget-related issues, etc.
Collaborative projects coordinated by the University of Bordeaux
Three of the selected collaborative European training projects in 2022 are coordinated by the University of Bordeaux, and therefore managed by lecturer-researchers from the Bordeaux campus, representing a total budget of 210,000€.
Collaborative projects in partnership with the University of Bordeaux
Five collaborative projects were also selected, of which the University of Bordeaux is a partner.
About the Erasmus+ program
In addition to student and staff mobility, the Erasmus+ program co-finances cooperation between lecturer-researchers from different countries for training, education, youth and sport, thus contributing to pedagogical innovation and academic excellence.
The program supports transnational collaborative cooperation projects, through annual calls for projects with the aim to:
- Develop curricula of excellence in Europe
- Promote tomorrow's skills, innovate in teaching practices, renew training models, in line with the rise of digital technology, sustainable development and societal issues
- Respond to the skills deficit or the need to update them in targeted sectors
- Contribute to the modernisation of higher education and the challenges of internationalisation
