Detailed description of project Back
The EDULINK programme, rooted on the European Commission communication on “Strengthening Co-operation with Third Countries in the Field of Higher Education” adopted in July 2001, represents a harmonised approach for the implementation of Commission funded programmes in ACP countries with a view to improve the effectiveness, management, visibility and hence the impact of ACP-EU co-operation in the field of higher education.
The global objective of the EDULINK Programme is to foster capacity building and regional integration in the field of higher education through institutional networking, and to support a higher education system of quality, which is efficient and relevant to the needs of the labour market, and consistent with ACP socio-economic development priorities. The programme purpose is to strengthen the capacity of ACP higher education institutions at institutional/administrative, academic and research and technology levels.
Projects selected for funding under the EDULINK Programme are identified through open Calls for Proposals. The evaluation of proposals is performed by an Evaluation Committee, assisted in its work by a number of assessors coordinated by a team leader. The global objective of the assessors’ assignment is to assist in the assessment, evaluation and final selection of the received proposals in accordance with the standards and procedures described in detail in the Guidelines for applicants responding to the open Call for Proposals.In the context of the Call for Proposals prospective beneficiaries will submit proposals for funding. These proposals will consist of a Concept Note, the Full Application and Annexes.
The evaluation process consists of the following steps:
Assessors will be involved in the steps 3 and 4: evaluation of the Concept Note and technical and financial evaluation of selected Full Applications.
