Erasmus+ Key Action 2 (KA2) - Knowledge alliances

What is a Knowledge Alliance?

Knowledge Alliances are transnational, structured and result-driven projects, notably between higher education and business. Knowledge Alliances are open to any discipline, sector and to cross-sectoral cooperation. The partners share common goals and work together towards mutually beneficial results and outcomes.

Knowledge Alliances are meant to have a short and long-term impact on the wide range of stakeholders involved, at individual, organisational and systemic level. As a general rule, Knowledge Alliances target the cooperation between organisations established in Programme Countries. However, organisations from Partner Countries can be involved in a Knowledge Alliance, as partners (not as applicants), if their participation brings an essential added value to the project.

Aims and priorities

Knowledge Alliances aim at strengthening Europe's innovation capacity and at fostering innovation in higher education, business and the broader socio-economic environment. They intend to achieve one or more of the following aims:

  • develop new, innovative and multidisciplinary approaches to teaching and learning;
  • stimulate entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial skills of higher education teaching staff and enterprise staff;
  • facilitate the exchange, flow and co-creation of knowledge.
