Impact of COVID-19 in CBHE ERASMUS+ Projects

Coping with the COVID-19 pandemic has been a very difficult and challenging endeavour worldwide. This situation particularly affected projects funded within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme, as many of them were (and to some extent continue to be) affected by restrictive measures to protect public health. The European Commission and entities working on Education and Training cooperation and mobility projects had to adapt to this new and difficult situation. Capacity Building in Higher Education (CBHE) projects are at high risk of being negatively impacted by the pandemic, as they are cross-regional initiatives and containment strategies and measures to tackle the impact of COVID-19 widely vary.

For this reason, INCOMA, as an institution responsible for coordinating Evaluation and Quality actions as part of several Capacity Building in HE projects, and as a member of several transnational Consortia that bring together institutions from around the world, created a global survey in order to understand how COVID-19 affected Capacity Building in HE projects and if this impact might entrain long-term changes.
