About the event

The Central European Joint Infoday is organised by Erasmus+ National Agencies from four neighbouring countries: Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia. This year’s 10th anniversary of common central European event is set in the context of the Erasmus+ Call for Proposals 2020 and focuses on the international dimension of the programme, i. e. actions supporting cooperation between Programme Countries and Partner Countries in the higher education sector.

The following actions will be presented: Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees, Capacity Building in Higher Education, Jean Monnet and Knowledge Alliances. These are centralised actions managed by the EACEA Executive Agency in Brussels. Additionally, the new type of action, European Universities, will be introduced in short presentation.

Theoretical background of each centralised action will be presented on the first day. Practical aspects of project preparation and implementation will be covered in parallel workshops building on presentations of good practice examples on the second day.

Conference participants will also have the opportunity to meet representatives from National Erasmus+ Offices and/or EU Delegations from several Partner Countries whose representatives will explain priorities of their respective countries/regions relevant for future project proposals. Through in-depth practical presentations and discussions, the organisers expect to provide encouragement and practical support to potential applicants under the next Erasmus+ call for proposals.

The event primarily targets representatives of higher education institutions from Austria, the Czech Republic Hungary and Slovakia, as well as enterprises interested in international dimension of the Erasmus+ programme.
