How to Apply
Organisations wishing to apply for Capacity Building in the field of Higher Education projects are invited to submit applications on-line to the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency in Brussels.
Deadline for on-line submission: 8 February 2018 at 12:00 (midday CET, Brussels time)
Before starting your application:
1. Read the Guidelines and the Call for proposals carefully.
Please note that the core description of your CBHE project will have to be completed in the Annex 1 "Detailed description of the project".
2. Applicants must have an ECAS (European Commission Authentication Service) account. If you already have an ECAS account, you may use this, if not, create an ECAS account. When you have created your ECAS account, return to this page.
You are now ready to start the application process:
1. The applicant and all partner organisations must be registered in the Participant Portal. Organisations that register in the Portal receive a Participant Identification Code (PIC) that will be requested in the electronic application form. To access the Participants' portal, you will need your ECAS username and password.
Step 1: check if the participating organisations are not already listed in the two below repositories:
Step 2: If a partner organisation is not listed in the above repositories:
Given that each applicant organisation should use only one PIC code, please first check with your legal representative's office whether such a PIC number has already been created for your organisation. If this is the case, you may use this PIC code to create your electronic application form. At the application stage, PIC statutes can be either "Validated", "Declared" or "Sleeping" but in case of double reference for one same organisation, the "Validated" PIC should always be considered.
2. Create your official electronic application form, also called the eForm. Use the official application package and the correct application forms for the Capacity Building in the Field of Higher Education (CBHE) programme action (please refer to the eForm and Annexes sections).
For CBHE, there are two different eForms: one for Joint Projects (JP) and one for Structural Projects (SP). Please note that one cannot replace the other. The choice of the eForm is a deliberate act of the applicant and must take into account the requirements related to each project type (e.g., in Structural Projects, the Ministries responsible for Higher Education from each Partner Country involved in the application, as full partners, is compulsory).
For practical details on how to use the Participant Portal and generate the eForm with the PICs, please consult the following presentation.
The eForm and its user guide will be activated around mid-November
The KA2 - Capacity Building in the Field of Higher Education 2018 eForm is available under two different types of eForms, one for Joint Projects and one for Structural Projects.
Completing your application:
Please DO NOT SEND A COPY of the e-form and the attached documents by post to EACEA.
