Expanding the specific areas is subjected to better addressing the specific country need in SSEA region while also considering the improvement of gender balance among the project’s beneficiaries.183 grants will be offered, from which 135 are SSEA to EU and 48 EU to SSEA. Per type: BA -20.2%, MA- 26.8%, PhD- 20.2%, PostDoc- 12.6%, and Staff – 20.2% from which half will be for academic staff and half for personnel related to the internationalization process and institutional building of the universities to learn techniques about the management and administration with reference to the international realm at the EU higher education institutions.The Joint Coordinator – IPB Bogor will also ensure that the project is more effective in those aspects requiring a deep knowledge of the country like the definition of vulnerable categories and the recognition of studies. Regarding the total number of mobility flows, the proposed scheme allows to distribute the project funding to a large number of individuals well over the minimum established by the Call for Proposals.
