Algeria has been one of the pioneering countries to introduce the Bologna Process as a system of instruction in Higher Education since the year 2004-2005. One among the objectives of the LMD reform was to enhance cooperation at international level and to encourage mobility and research.
As a matter of fact, practitioners and decision-makers worked in accordance with the exigencies set at an international level in order to actively take part to the Erasmus Mundus and Erasmus + programmes. Erasmus Mundus was meant to promote the career prospects of students and, thus, to promote intercultural understanding through cooperation with third countries.

Following the objective of the European Union's foreign policy with regard to sustainable development of third countries in Higher Education, the

Algerian universities have adhered to three main actions namely:
Action1. Erasmus Mundus joint programmes with scholarships for Masters and Doctorates;
Action 2. Erasmus Mundus Partnerships with former external scholarships;
Action 3. Erasmus Mundus Project Attractiveness.

On the other hand, Algeria is taking part to other projects like Tempus and Horizon 2020 with new Erasmus + actions. With a number of such projects, I attempt to share my experience in the field of international cooperation and bring some ideas of how to better innovate within the new capacity-building strategy. The concept of good practice exchange and how this has been applied in the Algerian Higher Education institutions will be further explained in this paper.
