The Erasmus+ programme runs from 2014-2020 and supports activities in education, training, youth and sport across all sectors of lifelong learning including higher education, further education, adult education, schools and youth activities.
Erasmus+ started on 1 January 2014 and replaces current funding Erasmus programmes run by the European Commission in the area of education, training, youth and sport, including the Lifelong Learning Programme (Erasmus, Comenius, Leonardo, Grundtvig and Transversal), Youth in Action and other international programmes including Jean Monnet and Erasmus Mundus.
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science began its participation in mobility programmes from the very beginning. Today Erasmus+ Programme builds on experiences and achievements of more than 25 years of European programmes in the fields of education, training and youth, covering both an intra-European as well as an international cooperation dimension. Erasmus+ is the result of the integration of European programmes implemented by the Commission during the period 2007 - 2013.
Erasmus+ is the EU's flagship education and training programme, enabling people at all stages of their lives to take part in stimulating learning experiences and helping to develop the education and training fields across the Europe as well as international. Each year thousand of students study (study period) and work (work placements) abroad.
Erasmus+ not only supports students, but also professors and staff who want to teach abroad (teaching periods), as well as helping university staff to receive training (training periods).
The student mobility assures the recognition of the studies abroad at the home university and enables the foreign students to attend the regular courses together with home students and to experience the advantages of the full co-operation in academic life of the hosting institution.
