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:
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.
