Erasmus + funding for Blended Intensive Programmes
Below, you will find information about the call for stimulus funds to departments at Uppsala University for activities related to organise Blended Intensive Programmes.
What are Blended Intensive Programmes (BIP)?
The organisational funds can be used for organising Blended Intensive Programmes. Blended Intensive Programmes (BIP) are short, blended programmes that combine a physical mobility with a virtual learning component. It can be organised for student mobility or traineeships, but also staff mobility. The aim of Blended Intensive Programmes is to encourage students with fewer possibilities to participate in mobility activities and to encourage the process of internationalisation at home. Blended intensive course can be a good platform for exchanging ideas and interaction between local and international students. The cooperation between a minimum of three Higher Education Institutions (HEI) must be supported by an inter-institutional agreement. More information on Blended Intensive Programmes including examples can be found in Blended mobility implementation guide and Higher Education Mobility Handbook.
About the call
Uppsala University is making available funds for five contributions equal to a minimum of € 6,000 and maximum of € 8,000 each to cover the organisational costs necessary for the planning and implementation of each Blended Intensive Programme. Organisational support for the blended intensive programme is based on the reported number of participants (learners on blended mobility activity) actually having taken part in the blended intensive programme. The organisational support sum for the programmes is calculated as 400 EUR per participant, with a minimum of 15 participants (i.e. a minimum of 6,000 EUR), up to a total of 8,000 EUR (i.e. the funding is capped with 20 participants).
