Knowledge Alliances are transnational, structured and result-driven projects, notably between higher education and business. Knowledge Alliances are open to any discipline, sector and to cross-sectoral cooperation. The partners share common goals and work together towards mutually beneficial results and outcomes.
As a general rule, Knowledge Alliances target the cooperation between organisations established in Programme Countries. However, organisations from Partner Countries can be involved in a Knowledge Alliance, as partners (not as applicants), if their participation brings an essential added value to the project. A full list of possible project activities can be found in the Erasmus+ Program Guide.
Knowledge Alliances are transnational and involve minimum six independent organisations from at least three Programme Countries, out of which at least two higher education institutions and at least two enterprises.
Project application is submitted by an institution, from a programme country on behalf of the consortium, to the Executive Agency in Brussels (EACEA).
More details about Knowledge Alliances projects can be found on the EACEA webpage.
