Erasmus+ MOBILE+3 Scholarship at University of Porto
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+ provides opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad. Erasmus+ supports 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.
Coordinated by the University of Porto, Portugal, the MOBILE+3 Project – Mobility for International Learning Experiences, approved in May 2017 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 14* 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, 144 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 44 partner institutions from the 14 countries above mentioned.
The implementation of the project will be ensured through this website and the online platform that the University of Porto has been developing in the last years for the management of its projects.
