An Intensive Programme (IP) is a short programme of study which brings together students and teaching staff from higher education institutions of at least three participating countries. It can last from 10 continuous full days to 6 weeks of subject related work.
An IP aims at:
• Encouraging efficient and multinational teaching of specialist topics which might otherwise not be taught at all, or only in a very restricted number of higher education institutions;
• Enabling students and teachers to work together in multinational groups and so benefit from special learning and teaching conditions not available in a single institution, and to gain new perspectives on the topic being studied;
• Allowing members of the teaching staff to exchange views on teaching content and new curricula approaches and to test teaching methods in an international classroom environment.
An Intensive Programme can be a one-off activity or repeated over a limited number of years (maximum duration of funding three consecutive years with an annual application round) with 2013 as the final year for annual applications. IP applications selected in 2012 and 2013 will not have the opportunity to apply for a renewal after 2013.
