What is Erasmus+?
The Erasmus+ Programme is the EU’s programme supporting education, training, youth and sport in Europe (2014-2020). The programme has recently been renewed for a further seven years.
Erasmus+ aims to boost employability among young people; allow young people to acquire new skills needed in the labour market; support Innovation, cooperation and intercultural understanding and to increase cooperation and development between Higher Education systems around the globe.
Israel is a Partner Country to the programme and Tel-Hai College participates in both Key Action 1, promoting the mobility of staff and students and Key Action 2, specifically entering into Capacity Building Projects, supporting cooperation with Programme Countries in the fields of higher education and youth. Capacity-building projects aim to support organisations/institutions and systems in their modernisation and internationalisation process.

Capacity Building Projects
Capacity-building projects in the field of higher education are transnational cooperation projects, based on multilateral partnerships, primarily between higher education institutions from Programme and eligible Partner Countries, such as Israel.
The aim of these projects is to support eligible Partner Countries to modernise, internationalise and increase access to higher education, address the challenges facing their higher education institutions and systems, increase cooperation with the EU, voluntarily converge with EU development in higher education, and promote people to people contacts, intercultural awareness, and understanding.
Tel-Hai College has both led and participated in Capacity Building Projects, some of which are detailed below…
IFI Project aims to systematically align the Israeli higher education system with global changes and develop new capacities for inclusive social finance on three levels: (a) Eco-system & Infrastructure, (b) Academy-Industry Cooperation and (c) Research, Teaching & Training.
IFI brings an interdisciplinary approach, stressing shifting focus is needed not only in finance but also in economics, law, technology, design and education.
Gathering European and Israeli experts, IFI project will act as a platform to foster integrated community and cultivating evidence-based standards and practices, building a scope of knowledge and case studies digital platform, training institutional investments, regulators and innovators, letting students practice ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance) investments, and encourage innovation. All practices are key components of a thriving sustainable finance ecosystem and HEIs (Higher Education Institutions) capacity building. IFI is the first national consortium created explicitly to provide infrastructure, knowledge and innovation to further develop the sustainable and inclusive finance ecosystem in HEIs and field.
The aim of WILLIAM is to advance Internalization at Home in Israeli Academic institutions.

Coordinated by Tel-Hai College, The SILICE project developed an open source platform that promoted social innovation ideas and international cooperation at regional levels between the EU, Israel and India.
It tackled cross-cutting issues like gender-balance and equal opportunities for women. This project also developed a creative and supportive environment within partner HEIs through the establishment of SinnoLABs (Social Innovation Labs) which contributed to the development of social economy enterprises in their diverse forms (including social enterprises) which play an important role in increasing the competitiveness and efficiency of the Israeli and Indian economy in many different ways
The In2it project aimed to develop and implement an innovative technological infrastructure for the purpose of advancing internationalization in higher education, and thereby to expand the practical applications of internationalization in Israeli academic colleges, to strengthen the capacities for teaching, learning, research, and training, and to improve the quality and positioning of Israeli state-funded academic colleges in higher education.
