On Thursday 8 July 2021, the Morocco National Erasmus+ Office held a “Cluster meeting” for capacity building projects, in partnership with the Ministry of Higher Education, Scientific Research and Professional Training and the European Union in Morocco, as part of the European Union Erasmus+ employability support programme.

By bringing together capacity building projects, the cluster meeting aimed to compare and assess their implementation, identify and share best practices, create and consolidate a national employability and entrepreneurship network, identify any difficulties experienced and ensure the long term sustainability of the projects.

The meeting also presented an ideal gateway to other programmes, initiatives and partners.

Since the launch of the reform in 2000, the Ministry has made “improving graduate employability” one of the priorities of its strategic development plans for the sector, with the aim of tackling youth unemployment. The European Union supported this work through the Erasmus + programme with 10 capacity building projects (Capacity Building for Higher Education CBHE) and 14 projects aimed at modernising education systems (Tempus).

Furthermore, 43 capacity building projects for higher education institutions were jointly financed between 2014 and 2020 in various areas, including internationalisation, governance, e-learning and the use of technology in education, development of new curricula, employability, quality assurance and building links with socio-economic partners.
