The European Commission has published a “Study on the impact of Erasmus+ Higher Education Partnerships and Knowledge Alliances at local, national and European levels on key higher education policy priorities”.

The authors report that among their findings reported is that “more than 90% of higher education institutions have indicated that Strategic Partnerships improve quality and relevance of higher education curricula/learning and teaching.”

This study provides the analysis of two types of Erasmus+ cooperation projects: Higher Education Strategic Partnerships and Knowledge Alliances, including their coverage of the policy priorities and objectives.  The study assessed what impact these projects had at systemic/policy, organisational and individual levels and how this affected the modernisation of higher education systems in Europe.
