The selection results of the sixth Call for Proposals to be funded from Tempus IV have now been finalised. 171 proposals have been recommended for funding from the Tempus budget. These proposals were evaluated by independent experts against the selection and award criteria published in the 6th Call. The short-list of projects, based on the experts' quality assessment, was sent to the EU Delegations, National Tempus Offices and relevant National Authorities in the Tempus Partner Countries for consultation, to ensure that they were in line with national higher education policies in the Partner Countries. The responses from the consultation process were analysed and taken into consideration, along with the results of the experts' evaluation, as well as other considerations to which a priority was given in the Call, namely to encourage Structural Measures and multi-country projects. Lastly, the selection committee had to ensure a geographic balance across the Tempus Partner Countries.
It should be noted that the grant amount finally awarded may be inferior to the one requested in the application. This information notice does not entitle the applicants to a grant from the Executive Agency (EACEA). The Agency will be legally bound, only when its authorized representative has signed the Grant Agreement.
