Funding provided under Erasmus+ KA107 International Credit Mobility has played a major role in opening partnership possibilities between the University of Limerick and the Algerian Government.  The University has revealed in its latest edition of UL LINKS Spring 2020 that “a specially designed International PhD is being developed between the University and the Algerian higher education sector.  The project is reported to worth about €20m over the next four years.

In 2015, UL was awarded support under the first call of Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility which supports student and staff flows in both directions for a project led by Professor Tewfik Soulimane, Head of Chemical Sciences at the Bernal Institute in UL.

Gerry O’Sullivan, Head of International Education at the HEA congratulated the University on its success.  “In 2015, UL was awarded just under €12,000 for a partnership with  the University of Tlemcen.  From that modest beginning, the University has built the trust that has established them as a partner that Algeria is keen to work with.”
