During 2005, a total amount of approximately € 57 million was committed under Tempus.
The Tempus III Programme (2000-2006) focuses on the development and modernisation of higher education in the 27 partner countries through co-operation with institutions from the Member States of the European Union.

Curriculum development projects cover a wide range of areas such as applied sciences, technology, business administration and social sciences. Institution building and university management projects support reforms related to quality assurance, teaching quality or the financial management of universities in the partner countries. In a majority of countries, the selected Structural and Complementary Measures are clearly linked to the action lines of the Bologna process. The selected projects under this programme component typically concern issues such as the design of quality assurance systems or the introduction of credit transfer mechanisms. Projects also focus on the modernisation of university operations and services, including the updating of training programmes, the use of information and communication technologies and the strengthening of international relations. The selected Individual Mobility Grants concern mainly retraining and study periods (70%) followed by preparatory activities for Joint European Projects (18%) and participation in specific conferences and seminars (12%).
