UniCa's strategies for international cooperation pursue the objective of promoting the free movement of people - students, lecturers, staff - and ideas in order to expand the dissemination of knowledge. 

In view of this general objective, the actions to be taken aim, on the one hand, to enhance and implement international two-way mobility programmes and, on the other hand, to devise new strategies for research and teaching, which develop increasing interaction and collaboration with strategic international partners.

Networking with other European universities must be strengthened, enabling the design of a new integrated model of university education, based on a long-term vision.

The main objective of the Interreg MED Programme is to foster sustainable growth in the Mediterranean area both by promoting innovative concepts and practices and a conscious use of resources and by supporting social inclusion through integrated territorial cooperation.

The Interreg MED Programme has four main thematic areas

Axis 1 Innovation
Developing smart and sustainable growth through the promotion of innovative capacities in the Mediterranean area;
Axis 2 Low Emission Economy
Promoting low-carbon and energy-efficient strategies in specific Mediterranean territories: cities, islands and poorly accessible areas;
Axis 3 Natural and cultural resources
Protect and promote the Mediterranean area's cultural and natural resources;
Axis 4 Governance
Strengthening governance in the Mediterranean area.

Types of project proposals:
The project architecture of the Interreg MED Programme 2014-2020 provides for three types of projects:

• Modular project;
• Horizontal project;
• Platform project.

Multi-module in which the individual modules are associated with each other depending on the strategy adopted, the main objectives to be achieved, the expected results, and the skills and experience of the partners:

  • M1+M2 (studying + testing): this type of project can last up to a maximum of 36 months. A duration of 15 months is recommended for M1 activities and 21 months for M2 activities;
  • M2+M3 (testing + capitalising): this type of project may last up to a maximum of 36 months, of which 21 months is recommended for M2 activities and 15 months for M3 activities;
  • M1+M2+M3 (studying + testing + capitalising): the maximum duration for integrated projects is 48 months of which we recommend: 15 months for M1 activities, 21 months for M2 activities and the remaining 12 months for M3 activities.

Horizontal Projects are the unifying element of modular projects linked to the same theme. The duration of this type of project is up to 36 months.

To complement the three priority themes (innovation, energy and environment), the architecture of the Interreg MED Programme provides for a fourth cross-sectoral axis with the specific aim of supporting the capacity of national and regional authorities to contribute to governance processes in the Mediterranean area.

The Platform Projects will analyse the results produced both by the Interreg MED Projects (Modular and Horizontal Project) and by other Mediterranean Programmes, initiatives, organisations in order to provide a scientific basis and a solid contribution to strategic policies and initiatives in the MED area on defined sectors and transversal issues.
