Basileus III is an Erasmus Mundus Action 2 project and is funded by the European Commission. The project consortium consists of 8 EU universities and 12 universities in the Western Balkans. Basileus III provides funding for academic mobility from:
- any Western Balkan institution to the 8 EU partner universities
- the 8 EU partner universities to the 12 Western Balkan partner universities
Via a so-called Target Group 2 other nationals of the participating Western Balkan countries can apply, on condition they have obtained a higher education degree in the Western Balkans. For more detailed eligibility criteria, please check this link. Eligible Western Balkan countries are: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Macedonia (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia), Kosovo (under UNSCR 1244/99), Serbia and Croatia.
The project duration is from 30 November 2010 until 29 November 2014. All mobility must start before 31 December 2011 (except staff).
