Five European countries and nine South Mediterranean countries are to cooperate in a new project to modernise higher education institutions.

The OpenMEd project will modernise higher education institutions through a bottom-up approach that aims to increase the uptake of digital learning tools like open education resources.

Morocco, Palestine, Egypt and Jordan are among the countries taking part in the international consortium project that launches in October.

OpenMEd is an international project, co-funded under the Erasmus+ Capacity Building in Higher Education programme. The project aims to develop strategies to help South-Mediterranean universities adopt the principles of openness and reusability.

Members of the Consortium are:

  • UNIMED, Mediterranean Universities Union, Italy (coordinator)
  • POLITO, Politecnico di Torino, Italy
  • UNIR, Universidad Internacional de La Rioja, Spain
  • US, University of Seville, Spain
  • COV, Coventry University, United Kingdom
  • CU, Cairo University, Egypt
  • AU, Alexandria University, Egypt
  • UCA, Cadi Ayyad University, Morocco
  • UIZ, Université Ibn Zohr, Morocco

  • ANNU, An-Najah National University, Palestine
  • AArU, Association of Arab Universities, Jordan
  • GJU, German Jordanian University, Jordan

Other universities from any Southern Mediterranean country also have the possibility to join the project as community partners.
