Improving the worldwide attractiveness of Erasmus+

Salon #2

- 17:00 ~ 20:00

Introduced in 2015, the opportunity of going to Europe through the Erasmus+ programme for non-Europeans has proven to be popular amongst students, teachers, and researchers alike. However, the interest for international mobilities is not as high as hoped for, and the geographical diversity of participants is still limited. Because being able to connect with higher education institutions from all across the world is a great chance for both students and staff, what can we do to try and keep this opportunity as qualitative and attractive as possible? You are invited to debate this and other interesting questions with our partners at this Erasmus Salon!
