Erasmus+ Key Action 1

About Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is the EU's new seven-year programme for boosting skills and employability through education, training, youth and sport.

Erasmus+ replaces seven programmes bringing together:

  • Lifelong Learning Programmes (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius and Grundtvig);
  • Youth in Action Programme;
  • 5 international cooperation programmes (Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and the programme for cooperation with industrialised countries);
  • a new sports action.

In the field of education and training (Key Action 1- Learning Mobility), the Erasmus initiative is renowned for the opportunities it provides for students to study abroad, as well as for academic and administrative staff in EU Higher Education Institutions.

Sapienza supports the process of University Internationalization by implementing the Erasmus+ Programme.

The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education

Sapienza University has been awarded the new Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) that will be in use throughout the Erasmus+ project (2014-2020). The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education provides the general framework for the European cooperation activities that a Higher Education Institution (HEI) may carry out as part of the Erasmus+ Programme.

The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education entitles Sapienza University to apply for Erasmus funding: both for student mobility (studies and traineeships) and for academic and administrative staff mobility activities. Moreover, the charter also allows Sapienza University to participate in other projects funded by the Erasmus+ Programme.

Erasmus+ Inter-Institutional Agreement

Sapienza is interested in partnerships with select European Higher Education Institutions to promote the reciprocal exchange of students, academic and administrative staff as per Key Action 1 - Learning Mobility.

Procedures for Establishing a New Erasmus+ Inter-Institutional Agreement

Institutes and Universities that are interested in undersigning a new Erasmus+ Agreement with Sapienza Uninversity should contact the relevant institutional/departmental coordinator and/or Faculty Administration and send a proposal through the Erasmus+ Agreement Form (please use the new 2014-21 template).

Inter-Institutional Agreements must include the following details:

  • The maximun number of students and staff members that can participate in an exchange programme during a given accademic year and the maximum length of the mobility period;
  • Subject areas (a full list of the subject areas can be found here) and the Erasmus Code that the exchange entails. The code for Sapienza University is: I ROMA01;
  • Contact details for the Erasmus Coordinator at both institutions (at Sapienza University, it is the Rector’s Delegate for International Mobility and Erasmus Institutional Coordinator Prof. Luciano Saso);
  • Departmental contact (and/or Departmental Erasmus Coordinator if applicable);
  • For template sections C-F, Sapienza has decided to split these into a separate attachment that can be found here. Partner Institutions should complete sections C-F via a link that will be provided by individual Sapienza Faculties;
  • Name and position of both partner’s authorized signatories.
