Virtual International Cooperation Projects | VIS
The VIS-initiative provides a funding scheme from 2021 to 2024 which allows lecturers and study programmes to obtain funding to set up Virtual International Cooperation projects. With the grant, universities of applied sciences and universities can give Dutch students the opportunity to gain international experience from the Netherlands. During a virtual international collaboration project, Dutch and foreign students work together remotely on an assignment, in which they link local issues to an international perspective. In this way the students work on their intercultural competences and language and digital skills.
The subsidy amounts to 15,000 euros per project and is intended to free up teachers or educationalists for:
- Collaborative development or revision of the virtual international cooperation project;
- Necessary coordination with a higher education institution abroad;
And coordination of the project.
More information can be found on the website of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
There are two subsidy rounds per year, one in February and one in September. All applications are listed in order of receipt. Are more applications coming in than is budgeted for? In that case, all first applications from institutional boards will be processed first.
A second application from an institution therefore has a chance of receiving a subsidy after all first applications from institutional boards have been processed. This also applies to the third, fourth and successive application, until the subsidy budget of the application period has been exhausted.
