Six Irish HEIs are among the award winners in the 2017 Erasmus+ Capacity Building Measures Action. A total of nearly €8.2m will be shared by the recipients with University College Dublin set to lead a project entitled “Improving Healthcare Outcomes in Chronic Disease – Enhancing the Curriculum at Masters Level” with almost €1m in funding support from the EU.
Capacity-building Projects are transnational co-operation projects based on multilateral partnerships, primarily between higher education institutions (HEIs) from Programme and eligible Partner Countries. They can also involve non-academic partners to strengthen the links with society and business and to reinforce the systemic impact of the projects.
The next call deadline will be in February 2018.
The National Agency at the HEA is holding an Info Day on Tuesday 24 October 2017 in the Gresham Hotel, Dublin to promote opportunities under this initiative. Further details in due course.
