Office of the European Programmes for Student Mobility

1. THE ERASMUS PROJECT

Set to last until 2020, Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. It merges seven prior programmes such as Erasmus, Erasmus Mundus, Leonardo da Vinci, Tempus etc.
The programme has opportunities for people of all ages and facilitates the learning mobility opportunities for students, education staff, trainees, apprentices, volunteers, youth workers and young people, including strategic improvement of their professional skills.

Erasmus+ is mainly oriented to European partner countries, but addresses also non-European partner countries.
The actions are structured in three main areas, defined as Key Actions:

Key Action 1 (KA1) - Learning mobility of individuals

  • Higher education students and staff;
  • Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees and Erasmus+ Master Loans;
  • Young people and youth workers and Vocational education and training learners and staff.

Key Action 2 (KA2) - Innovation and good practices

  • Strategic partnerships to support innovation in the sector;
  • Knowledge Alliances to foster innovation in and through higher education together with businesses;
  • Capacity building (higher education: among others, modernisation of governance and management of HEIs and systems.
  • Shared IT platforms.

Key Action 3 (KA3) - Support for policy reform

  • Opportunities under this Key Action contribute to supporting the overall EU policy agenda, the Education and Training 2020 cooperation framework, and the Youth Strategy;
  • Jean Monnet;
  • Opportunities for teaching, research, and policy debate on the EU and its policies.

3. STAFF MOBILITY (ACADEMIC)

Erasmus+ supports teaching periods at higher education institutions (HEIs) abroad.
If you work in higher education, you can spend time teaching at an institution in an Erasmus+ Programme or Partner country.
With Erasmus+, opportunities are available to spend time teaching at an education institution abroad operating at all levels.
A teaching period between two Programme countries must last a minimum of 2 days and a maximum of 2 months. This excludes travelling time.
During your stay abroad, the teaching activity must comprise a minimum of 8 hours per week (or any shorter period of stay) of actual teaching time.
If you work in a HEI, your institution must either, in the case of Programme countries, hold the Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education or, in the case of Partner countries, have signed an inter-institutional agreement with the receiving institution.
Before beginning your teaching period, you, your HEI and the receiving institution sign a Mobility Agreement. This document sets out your learning goals, rights and responsibilities and also how the teaching period will be recognised.
HEIs belonging to the Project Countries may host teachers from HEIs belonging to the Programme Countries. A teaching period between a Programme country and a Partner country must last a minimum of 5 days and maximum of 2 months. This excludes travelling time.

EU grants provide a contribution to your costs for travel and subsistence during your time abroad and vary depending on:

-The receiving country
-In the case of mobility within Programme countries, the level of demand from staff from your country who intend to teach abroad
-The distance between your country and the receiving country
-In the case of mobility within Programme countries, availability of other financial sources in your country or region

Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMD) provide eligible organisations with the opportunity to jointly organise and run Master degree programmes. The EU provides funding for these programmes to make a selection of students for four consecutive academic years (KA 1).
The necessary institutional commitment of all the organisations participating in the EMJMD consortium must be in place before the enrolment of the first EMJMD students and must cover all academic, operational, administrative, and financial aspects related to the implementation of the EMJMD.

The successful completion of the study programme must lead to the award of either a joint degree (i.e. one single degree certificate issued on behalf of at least two higher education institutions of the EMJMD consortium) or multiple degrees (i.e. at least two degree certificates issued by two higher education institutions of the consortium).
In case you need further information on the Erasmus+, please visit the website of the Italian National Agency for Erasmus+ Indire or the website of the European Commission's Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).

In case you need further information, please do not hesitate to contact our Erasmus+ office.

4. STAFF MOBILITY (NON-ACADEMIC)

With Erasmus+, training opportunities are available to staff working in education, also in non-teaching capacities.
Training periods abroad can consist of job shadowing, observation periods, professional development courses or specific competence-building events.
A training period between two Programme countries must last a minimum of 2 days and cannot last more than 2 months. This excludes travelling time.
A training period between a Programme country and a Partner country must last a minimum of 5 days and cannot last more than 2 months. This excludes travelling time.
