Funding and support
Tempus is the European Union’s programme which supports the modernisation of higher education in the Partner Countries of Eastern Europe, Central Asia, the Western Balkans and the Mediterranean region, mainly through university cooperation projects.
The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) is responsible for the management / implementation of all Tempus Actions and acts under powers delegated by the European Commission. The formal responsibility for supervising the activities of the Tempus Programme lies with two departments of the European Commission, the EuropeAid Development and Cooperation Office (DEVCO) and the Directorate-General for Enlargement (ELARG), since both allocate funds directly to the Executive Agency to manage the Programme. In line with their mandate, the European External Action Service (EEAS) contributes to the strategic orientations of the Programme and the Directorate-General for Education and Culture (EAC) brings in its sectoral expertise and facilitates linkages with the EU's internal higher education reform policies. These two Commission Departments are therefore also associated with the implementation of the Tempus Programme.
LifeADA Project is funded by European union and its budget correlates with proposed activities. The main categories of project costs are devoted to mobility (40.2 % of the total budget). It is planned that partner poject staff and teachers will conduct 129 visits (totally 352 days) in EU countries and 125 visits (249 days) in other partner countries. The same time EU project staff and teachers will conduct 84 travels (252 days) to partner countries and 60 travels (164 days) to other EU countries. The same time student mobility will be also respectable, students from partner countries will conduct 36 visits (total duration of 918 days) to EU countries and 60 visits (total duration of 990 days) to other partner countries. Students from EU countries will conduct 60 visits (total duration of 990 days) to partner countries and 24 visits (612 days) to other EU countries. The proposed staff cost corresponds with the activities, it comprise 35.6 % of the budget and will be partially covered by co-financing. Printing and publishing (3.03 % of the budget) is aimed to increase project visibility and to ensure dissemination. Other costs (6.2 % of the budget) are devoted to translation of the documents, conference materials, creation of web page and the biggest amount is devoted to financial audit. Proposed project will be carried out by using existing equipment of EU partners. However, additional equipment should be procured with the aim to successfully complete the action within partner countries. ICT technologies, equipment for teaching purposes will be procured. Budget for procurement (8.4 % of the budget) will be equally split at non EU partner country HEIs. The final procurement list is drawn up in the budget section. Equipment will be procured, installed and maintained. Indirect (institutional) costs are 7% of the budget.
