Partnerships for Excellence

Aim and objectives

Within the framework of the Erasmus+ Programme, funding is also allocated to the so called “Centralised Actions” which are administered by the European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).

Partnerships for Excellence support projects with a long-term sustainable perspective.



The following actions are eligible under this type of partnerships:


Centres of Vocational Excellence (CoVEs):

This action supports the gradual establishment and development of international collaborative networks of CoVEs that contribute to creating skills ecosystems for innovation, regional development, and social inclusion at national and international level, approximating and aligning the quality of the education and training provided.

Erasmus Mundus Action:

  • Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters (EMJM)
  • Erasmus Mundus Design Measures (EMDM)

Further information on the Partnerships for Excellence action, the administrative rules, the deadlines and the application opportunities is available on the website of the European Education and Culture Executive Agency.
