Three types of JEPs have been developed:
· Curriculum Development projects
· University Management projects
· Training Courses for Institution building
 
2. Structural and Complementary Measures (SCM) - provide a framework for short-term responses to particular needs that partner countries must have clearly defined as their priorities. The types of projects which have been developed are:
· Information and dissemination projects
· Training projects
· Pilot projects
 
3. Individual Mobility Grants (IMG) - provide professors, lecturers, members of staff of higher-education institutes and ministry officials the opportunity to travel to other countries for work, related to the objectives of the Tempus programme. Types of eligible visits are:
