Proposals invited for programme on Support to Indo–European Interactions on Higher Education

The Delegation of the European Union to India has announced an open call for proposals to a new programme entitled ”Support to Indo–European Interactions on Higher Education”. Deadline for submission of proposals is 12 October 2012. The programme is part of the broader Erasmus Mundus II – Partnership Action 2 (India Strand) programme, which has been designed to promote knowledge and intercultural understanding and contribute to the sustainable development of India in the field of higher education. The overall programme aims to support institutional linkages between institutions, organize mobility of students, support research collaboration and organization of joint workshops and international conferences. It enhances awareness and visibility in the relation between EU and India.
The specific objective of the present Call for Proposals is to facilitate the exchange of best practices on higher education, sharing of knowledge, intercultural understanding, and organisation of debates, production of research papers, information and visibility between EU and India. In reality, the new programme very much appears to be a follow-up programme to the EU-India Study Centres programme that ran from 2008 till 2011 – more information regarding this programme.
The maximum amount made available under the new Call for Proposals is EUR 1 000 000.
