Four Irish HEIs in share of €5m EU Knowledge Alliance Funding
Posted: 6 October, 2020
Four Irish higher education institutions will feature in 5 of the 30 Knowledge Alliances selected by the European Commission. Each alliance is worth close to €1m. In all, a total of €4,989,533 has been approved for projects led by partners in Norway, Belgium, Spain, Italy and Germany.
Cork Institute of Technology is a partner in two of the alliances.
Knowledge alliances are transnational and result-driven activities between higher education institutions and businesses. They target co-operation between organisations established in Programme Countries. Organisations from Partner Countries may also participate as partners (not as applicants) if they bring an essential added value to the project. The projects are open to any discipline, sector and to cross-sectoral cooperation.
The Irish Erasmus+ National Agency at the HEA has actively promoted the action over the years.
