Strategic Partnerships aim to support the development, transfer and/or implementation of innovative practices at organisational, local, regional, national or European levels.
Strategic Partnerships offer the opportunity to organisations active in the fields of education, training and youth, as well as enterprises, public authorities, civil society organisations active in different socio-economic sectors to cooperate in order to implement innovative practices leading to high quality teaching, training, learning and youth work, institutional modernisation and societal innovation.
Erasmus+ offers great flexibility in terms of activities that Strategic Partnerships can implement, as long as the proposal demonstrates that these activities are the most appropriate to reach the objectives defined for the project.
Within the framework of preparatory measures for full participation of Serbia in the Erasmus+ program, the National Call for submission of Erasmus+ projects in 2018 was published, within which institutions and organizations from Serbia can apply for Strategic Partnerships as Coordinators. Applications for KA2 Strategic partnerships in the field of general education, vocational education and training, higher education and adult education are submitted to the Foundation Tempus by March 21, 2018 at 12:00 in Brussels time (CET), while applications for the KA2 Strategic Partnership in the field of youth are submitted to the Foundation Tempus by April 26, 2018 at 12 am CET.
If the Strategic Partnership project coordinator is from the Program country, institutions from Partner countries can participate as partners, if their participation brings added value to the project. In that case, the application is submitted to the National agency of the country where the applicant is registered, and for Strategic partnership projects in the field of general education, vocational education and training, higher education and adult education until March 21 2018 at 12:00 in Brussels time (CET), while for the Strategic partnership projects in the field of youth, three deadlines are available: February 1, April 26 and October 4 2018.
