EU - Australia

Since 2002, the European Commission and Australia have cooperated in eight rounds of jointly funded bilateral curriculum development and mobility projects. The EU-Australia projects are part of the European Commission’s Industrialised Countries Instrument- Education Cooperation Programme (ICI-ECP) - for cooperation between the EU and Australia, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea in tertiary education and training. 

 

The programme, known in Australia since 2012 as Encounter: Australia – Europe, aims to strengthen the linkages between institutions by facilitating student and staff mobility between Australia and Europe. At the completion of the 8th round, over 1,400 students from Europe and Australia will have been given the opportunity of an overseas study experience.
