Tempus projects


Tempus is the European Union’s programme which supports the modernisation of higher education in the Partner Countries of Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Western Balkans and the Mediterranean region, mainly through university cooperation projects. It also aims to promote voluntary convergence of Partner Country higher education systems with EU developments in the field of higher education. In addition to institutional cooperation Tempus also promotes a “people to people” approach.

From 2014-2020, a new EU Erasmus + education program was launched, which included the Capacity Building in Higher Education (ex-Tempus).
