Assumption that the applicant has an idea for a project, ideally proposed by, or together with. a partner country
International Office with staff member knowledgeable or prepared to learn about TEMPUS regulations and inform Finance Department and University Director about requirements
WARNINGS: if you are successful:
you may have problems with dealing with the grant within your institution AND if you don’t follow the TEMPUS requirements you may not receive the amount you spent
Assumption is that the staff member has appropriate contacts in a qualifying country
Ensure that project fits country or regional priorities – Annexes 7-10 of Third Call Application Guidelines
Ensure that National TEMPUS Office in partner country or each NTO in each country proposed in a region are consulted
You need to decide whether your project is a Joint Project or a Structural Measure since priorities are different for each
You may have to go for one rather than the other if the national/regional priorities demand it
Single country projects with multiple partners in one country are easier
Why choose multi-country?
Preference may be given to multi-country projects
One country may not have enough institutions to make a project viable
A project may fit regional rather than national projects
Preferably people in institutions that you have dealt with and believe to be competent and serious
Ensure a good contact person in one of the partner country institutions. Could lead a co-oordination work package.
If you do not have enough partners:
Subscribe to TEMPUS-TALK and check requests for partners
If necessary advertise through National TEMPUS Office
If you can’t find good partners, give up or wait for a future call

Ensure NTOs are fully involved in ALL partner countries in multi-country projects. This requires cooperation of the partner country lead persons
