The new ECIU University Erasmus Inter-Institutional Agreement changes the mind-set towards mobility

ECIU | 2020-08-31

Mobility is one of the core aspects of the challenge-based approach, and therefore an essential element of all ECIU University’s activities. The Erasmus Inter-Institutional Agreement was recently signed between all 12 partner institutions at the ECIU University and included all the education fields. The agreement gives the necessary breakthrough to intensify the already existing mobility of students and staff.

Artur Silva, Work Package Lead for Mobility at the ECIU University and Vice-Rector at the University of Aveiro, Portugal, explains the significance of the agreement: “It is important because instead of bilateral agreements between individual institutions, as we have been practicing traditionally until just recently, now we have a multi-lateral, inter-institutional agreement that involves all partners at the ECIU University alliance.

The European scale of the mobility is not only written on paper – it will have an impact on every student and staff member who is willing to try out the ECIU University opportunities.

Erasmus Inter-Institutional Agreement will support new types of mobility: virtual mobility, blended mobility and the mobility through challenges and micro-modules – the essential parts of the ECIU University activities. This means that teachers, students and learners will be able to work on challenges and take up micro-modules with other learners and teachers from other countries and do it flexibly.

The selection for ERASMUS+ exchange studies at foreign higher education institutions during the spring semester of 2020/2021 academic year has started. For more information, click here or contact:
