GUIDELINES FOR APPLICANTS-

ERASMUS +

KEY ACTION 1

Mobility of students and staff between Programme and Partner countries to the UNIVERSITY OF ALMERÍA (Spain)

Deadline for applications (for filling the form and submitting the documents) 01 November 2021

1. INTRODUCTION

The Erasmus+ Programme is an initiative launched by the European Commission to fund mobilities among EU countries and between Programme Countries (EU countries) and Partner Countries (countries from the rest of the world). It was launched for the period 2014-2020 and, every year, a new call for proposals will be open with the aim to promote socio-economic changes, the key challenges that Europe will be facing until the end of the decade and to support the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion.

Although the Erasmus program was initially addressed only to Programme Countries (EU), in 2015, for the first time, part of the EU funding will support mobility actions between Programme Countries and Partner Countries. To this respect, the Erasmus+ Programme is designed to support Programme Countries' efforts to efficiently use the potential of Europe’s human talent and social capital, while confirming the principle of lifelong learning by linking support to formal, non-formal and informal learning throughout the education, training and youth fields. The Programme also enhances the opportunities for cooperation and mobility with Partner Countries, notably in the fields of higher education and youth.

This call for applications is launched in the framework of ERASMUS + Key Action 1 Mobility Projects in the Field of Education, Training and Youth between Program and Partner Countries.

This action contributes to cooperation between the EU and eligible Partner Countries and reflects the EU external action objectives, priorities and principles.

This Erasmus+ Action 1 project between the University of Almería and its partner universities in regions 1, 2, 3, 8 and 13 offers Undergraduate students and staff the chance to spend a study or teaching/training period at the University of Almería (Spain).

Mobility students and staff will receive a grant as a contribution to their costs for travel and subsistence during the period of study and an amount to support them in covering their travel costs. Mobility students can attend courses and use all the facilities available at the University of Almería with no additional tuition fees (with the exception of any minor fees also applicable to local students). All learning activities approved in the Learning Agreement and completed successfully will be fully recognized at the home university.

The Home Universities will be in charge of selecting students/staff and sending them to the University of Almería (including preparation, monitoring and recognition related to the mobility period) and of announcing this call through their own web page and other publicity means.

Applicants are kindly requested to carefully read all the information contained in this document before proceeding to fulfill and submit their applications form.

KEY ACTION 1

Mobility of students and staff between Programme and Partner countries to the UNIVERSITY OF ALMERÍA (Spain)

Deadline for applications (for filling the form and submitting the documents) 10 June 2021

1. INTRODUCTION

The Erasmus+ Programme is an initiative launched by the European Commission to fund mobilities among EU countries and between Programme Countries (EU countries) and Partner Countries (countries from the rest of the world). It was launched for the period 2014-2020 and, every year, a new call for proposals will be open with the aim to promote socio-economic changes, the key challenges that Europe will be facing until the end of the decade and to support the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion.

Although the Erasmus program was initially addressed only to Programme Countries (EU), in 2015, for the first time, part of the EU funding will support mobility actions between Programme Countries and Partner Countries. To this respect, the Erasmus+ Programme is designed to support Programme Countries' efforts to efficiently use the potential of Europe’s human talent and social capital, while confirming the principle of lifelong learning by linking support to formal, non-formal and informal learning throughout the education, training and youth fields. The Programme also enhances the opportunities for cooperation and mobility with Partner Countries, notably in the fields of higher education and youth.

This call for applications is launched in the framework of ERASMUS + Key Action 1 Mobility Projects in the Field of Education, Training and Youth between Program and Partner Countries.

This action contributes to cooperation between the EU and eligible Partner Countries and reflects the EU external action objectives, priorities and principles.

This Erasmus+ Action 1 project between the University of Almería and its partner universities in regions 1, 2, 3, 8 and 13 offers Undergraduate students and staff the chance to spend a study or teaching/training period at the University of Almería (Spain).

Mobility students and staff will receive a grant as a contribution to their costs for travel and subsistence during the period of study and an amount to support them in covering their travel costs. Mobility students can attend courses and use all the facilities available at the University of Almería with no additional tuition fees (with the exception of any minor fees also applicable to local students). All learning activities approved in the Learning Agreement and completed successfully will be fully recognized at the home university.

The Home Universities will be in charge of selecting students/staff and sending them to the University of Almería (including preparation, monitoring and recognition related to the mobility period) and of announcing this call through their own web page and other publicity means.

Applicants are kindly requested to carefully read all the information contained in this document before proceeding to fulfill and submit their applications form.
