Higher education and Latin America: you are from a HEI and would like to coordinate a project between Latin America and Europe?

EU support to Higher Education contributes to building the EU-LA Common Higher Education Area objective (set out for the first time by the Heads of State and Government of EU-LAC through the Declaration of Guadalajara in 2004, and reiterated during the successive EU-LAC Summits) is recognised as a strategic element for strengthening bilateral and multilateral relations between the two regions. Higher education institutions (HEIs) play a leading role as a driver of socio-economic development to overcome social inequality in Latin America by improving the quality of national education systems.

We have written an entire proposal for such specific call on Supporting Higher Education in Latin America, and would like to submit under ERASMUS+ (call details to be published later this year, but to be submitted most likely in January-February 2018).

We are looking for:

  • reliable Higher education Institution from EU (preferably Spanish speaking country) to act as coordinator
  • with expertise in inclusive education and accessible OERs
  • with expertise in Latin America cooperation or having at least cooperated in the past with at least ONE Latin American country and HEI.

All other partners are already in place.
