The European Union’s Erasmus+ programme supports education, youth and sport. The first programme generation went from 2014 to 2020. The second programme generation has started in 2021 and lasts until 2027.
The Erasmus+ programme includes various funding opportunities, not only for the mobility of individuals, but also for cooperation and internationalization in higher education. The International Office of Division 2 is responsible for the mobility of individuals (Key Action 1). The Division 1.B. offers support in the preparation and submission of proposals for Key Actions 2 and 3 and Jean Monnet Actions. For detailed information on the various funding opportunities, please refer to the websites of the Erasmus+ programme and the National Agency for EU Higher Education Cooperation.
The University of Potsdam is currently participating in several Erasmus+ projects. Within the framework of the “European Universities” initiative, the UP coordinates the “European Digital UniverCity” (EDUC) project. In cooperation with five other European universities from France, Italy, the Czech Republic and Hungary, the project aims to create a common space for students, academic and administrative staff to work together. Beyond that, the UP is involved in other projects dealing with the intensification of cooperation between European higher education institutions. Below you find the list of all current Erasmus+ projects at the UP.
