The 9 universities and the ministry are partners in the Erasmus+ Capacity Building project 'TIGRIS' (Transfer of Good Practices & Reinforcement of Internationalisation Strategies in Kurdistan). The TIGRIS Project has been awarded EU co-funding within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme “Capacity Building in the Field of Higher Education”. Capacity building projects in the field of higher education support the modernisation, accessibility, and internationalisation of higher education in Partner Countries. The TIGRIS project runs for three years, from 2017-2020.
