Description of the project

 

The Erasmus+ Programme

The Erasmus+ programme aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernising Education, Training, and Youth work. The seven year programme will have a budget of €14.7 billion; a 40% increase compared to current spending levels, reflecting the EU's commitment to investing in these areas.

Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad.

Erasmus+ will support transnational partnerships among Education, Training, and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.

It will also support national efforts to modernise Education, Training, and Youth systems. In the field of Sport, there will be support for grassroots projects and cross-border challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.

Erasmus+ brings together seven existing EU programmes in the fields of Education, Training, and Youth; it will for the first time provide support for Sport. As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across the Education, Training, Youth, and Sport sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules.

 

The MOBILE+ Partnership

Coordinated by the University of Porto, Portugal, the MOBILE+ Project – MOBility for International Learning Experiences, approved in July 2015 and financially supported by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ Programme, aims at fostering the mutual enrichment and a better understanding between Portugal and specifically 26* programme and partner countries, through the encouragement of student and academic and administrative staff mobility and the transfer of know-how and best practices.
Within the 2 years of duration of the project, 225 scholarships will be granted to students and staff from the different programme and partner institutions, after the signature of an Inter-Institutional Agreement between the University of Porto and each one of the 70 partner institutions from the 26 countries abovementioned.
The implementation of the project will be ensured through this website and the online platform that the U.Porto has been developing in the last years for the management of its projects.
