The Lifelong Learning Programme (2007-2013) will end by the 31st of December 2013

The Inter-institutional Mobility and the inter-institutional cooperation in Education will be carried out into the framework of a new generation of programme dedicated to education, training, youth and sport, finally named ERASMUS+ (former propositions, YES Europe, Erasmus for All)

The new Erasmus+ will replace seven existing programmes with one. It brings together the existing Lifelong Learning Programme (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius and Grundtvig), Youth in Action and five international cooperation programmes (Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and the programme for cooperation with industrialised countries)

The European Commission published in Juy 2013 a template for inter-institutional agreements between higher education institutions, available here

& here

As it is specified by the European Commission – Education & Training, “this template, aiming at ensuring student and staff mobility of high quality, is valid only for inter-institutional agreements between institutions located in current programme countries (EU Member States, Iceland, Turkey, fYRoM, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland).

A template for inter-institutional agreements between programme and partner countries (all other countries) will be published at a later stage. The template is provided for academic years 2014-2015 up to 2020-2021.

Inter-institutional agreements are no longer limited to bilateral arrangements and can be signed between more than two higher education institutions, so providing for mobilities between groupings of institutions. The agreements may be circulated electronically (no need of paper circulation anymore).

For information, below the duration of the exchanges between programme countries that should be supported by the programme:

    • student mobility for studies: from 3 to 12 months
    • student mobility for traineeships: from 2 to 12 months
    • staff mobility: from 2 days (excluding travel time) to 2 months, with at least 8 hours teaching in case of teaching assignment
