Erasmus+ programme offers possibilities for Indo-European collaboration

May 9, 2021 - 03:22

Erasmus+, the new European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport, was launched in January 2014. It builds on the legacy of previous Erasmus programmes by offering opportunities for 4 million people to study, train, teach or volunteer abroad by 2020. The programme has a budget of €14.5 bn for 2014–2020 – 40% more than funding for the current education and training mobility programmes. Erasmus+ replaces the current Lifelong Learning Programme (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius, Grundtvig), as well as Youth in Action, Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and the bilateral cooperation programme with industrialised countries. 

Proposals/applications for action 1 (mobility and joint masters degrees) can be submitted until end of March of every year for projects starting between August and October of the same year. For Erasmus+ and access to the Programme Guide please see: http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/index_en.htm

The programme offers specific possibilities for Indo-European collaboration. From 2004 to 2013, nearly 3 400 Indian students, fellows, scholars and university staff benefited from Erasmus Mundus scholarships; and more than 50 Indian universities partnered with European universities to facilitate academic mobility. Erasmus+ will continue to support the international mobility of students and staff to and from partner countries as regards higher education, including mobility organised on the basis of joint, double or multiple degrees of high quality. The EU Delegation will publish on its website information about calls for proposals and opportunities to participate in Erasmus+ for Indian students and academicians. More information.

The previous Erasmus Mundus programme comes to an end on 31 December 2013. However, ongoing projects will continue their activities – including the selection of students for scholarships – until the end of their grant agreement.
