On July, 10, 2013, the European Commission’s Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) decided upon the 2013 round of the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 – Strand 1 – Partnership programme, EU’s flagship programme aimed at promoting the attractiveness of the European Higher Education system and third country cooperation and partnerships. EACEA received 180 proposals under Action 2 – Erasmus Mundus Partnerships, Strand I, out of which 57 projects were selected for funding.
Four Asia Regional consortia were selected for Lot No. 11 – primarily devoted to South Asia (including universities in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka). They are coordinated by universities in France, Cyprus, UK and Germany. Mälardalen University in Västerås is a partner in one of the consortia, and Uppsala and Turku universities in another.
Lund University’s application for the India Lot, No. 13, was successful this year. Lund University will coordinate a consortium entitled EMINTE (Erasmus Mundus India To Europe), in which also Uppsala University is a partner. SASNET is an Associate partner in this consortium.
