Erasmus+ 2014-2020 Programme includes all European and international programmes and initiatives of the European union in the area of education, training, youth and sports.
In the period from 2014-2020, Erasmus+ replaces seven previous programmes: Lifelong Learning Programme (with its subprogrammes Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius and Grundtvig), Youth in Action Programme, and five international cooperation programmes (Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and the programme of cooperation with industrialized countries and territories). The aim of Erasmus+ is to strengthen knowledge and skills, employability of European citizens, as well as to promote education, training and working in the area of youth and sports.
Within Key activity 1, the Programme allows individual mobility of students and staff abroad and offers them the experience of studying, working and living in a different academic, cultural and social environment.
A prerequisite for our University’s participation in the Erasmus+ Programme is applying for the Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education, according to which the University and all its constituents accept the terms and conditions of the Programme and assume the obligation to carry out activities in accordance with the high standards of quality.
After accepting the application for the Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education, the European Commission awarded the University of Osijek with the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education for the period of 2014-2020.
Detailed information about the Erasmus+ programme and the open competitions for the institutions from Croatia are on the web pages of the Agency for Mobility and EU Programmes.
