Globes: The Council for Higher Education in Israel has signed an agreement with the European Commission to join Tempus (the trans-European mobility scheme for university studies). The faculty and student exchange program between the EU and 27 other countries, including Lebanon, Syria, and Iran. Tempus decided on Israel's membership a month ago.
As a member of Tempus, Israeli institutions of higher education can submit candidate faculty and students for exchange with European institutions.
The EU will invest over €15 million in Tempus over the next three years. The Council for Higher Education estimates that Israel will receive about €1 million in the upcoming academic year.
