Key Actions 2 supports the internationalization of European institutions of higher education in the frame of Cooperation for Partnerships (former so called "strategic partnerships"), Partnerships for Excellence (among them the European Universities, Teacher Academies, Erasmus Mundus Joint Master) and Partnerships for Innovation (e.g. Alliances for Innovation, Forward looking projects). Capacity Building projects focus on the collaboration with partner countries worldwide.
Key Action 3 projects are for the support of policy development and cooperation.
Jean Monnet actions will support Higher Education Institutions inside and outside Europe to promote teaching and research on European integration and promote policy debate within Jean Monnet Modules (short teaching programs), Chairs (longer teaching posts) and Centre of Excellence (gathering knowledge of high-level experts in various disciplines of European Studies).
Those projects often go beyond mobility collaboration between higher education institutions, and have a wider impact. Consortiums usually have at least 3 different partners and last for several years. Erasmus KA2 and 3 have proven to be quite complex and similar to EU research funding regarding the application process but also in administration, finance structures and reporting of successful projects.
Since 2015, International Office and Research Support jointly support members of the University of Konstanz in the application process and administration of successful projects.
To foster the engagement of higher education institutions within BadenWürttemberg in European funded collaboration, the Ministry supports financially the application process, e.g. travel costs, student assistants. Calls are usually published in late summer/fall via the U Konstanz "Forschungsnachrichten".
Currently, the University of Konstanz is engaged in the following Erasmus+ KA2 and KA3 projects:
