A total of 13 projects have been selected for funding following the second call for proposals under the EU-Canada Agreement on cooperation in higher education and training (OJ No C 110 of 16.4.1996, p. 13).

The 13 projects are all being implemented by joint EU-Canada consortia, and involve a total of 125 higher education and training establishments (76 in Europe and 49 in Canada). There are also 14 associated partner organizations from industry and commerce participating in the projects. A total of ECU 1.5 million will go to the projects from the Community, with Canada also putting up funding.

The 13 projects were chosen from a total of 72 valid proposals received. Taken together with the first call, there are now 19 projects receiving support under the agreement, involving staff and students in some 170 institutions.

The themes to be covered by the 13 new projects include traditional academic themes such as improving transatlantic academic recognition of qualifications. Other themes are more wide-ranging, such as training of professionals in child abuse issues, protecting and safeguarding the environment, and new industrial training needs generated by the emergence of the global economy.
