From Erasmus Mundus to Erasmus +
From Erasmus Mundus to Erasmus+
As from 2014, Erasmus Mundus Masters Courses will be part of
Erasmus+, under the name 'Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees'. Erasmus+ is the new EU programme for education, training, youth and sport, launched by the European Commission on 1 January 2014. It brings together all the current EU and international
schemes for education, training, youth and sport (including Erasmus
Mundus). The overall aim is to increase
efficiency, make it easier to apply for grants, as well as reducing
duplication and fragmentation. For students and researchers this means increased funding for their international academic and research career.
Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorates, on their hand, will now be managed under the Horizon 2020/ Marie Sklodowska-Curie Programme
Despite the official end of the Erasmus Mundus programme (2009-2013),
ongoing Erasmus Mundus projects will continue their activities and
selection of students applying to the existing Joint Masters, Doctorates
and Partnerships will be carried out regularly in 2014.
