Erasmus+ is a program created by the European Union (EU) to promote education, training, youth, and sport in Europe. One of the aims of the program is to foster cooperation with partner countries, including Canada as well as to promote the personal development and improve the employment opportunities of youth.
The Erasmus+ program is not only for students: it brings together seven (7) programs aimed at a wide range of professionals from a variety of organizations, including academic institutions. Each year, European institutions are invited to establish partnerships with other institutions abroad under each program.
How to participate
Canadian institutions wishing to participate in Erasmus+ can jointly undertake with their partners a number of development and networking activities, in order to promote motilities for training and teaching, access projets and funding opportunities, exchange on practices, as well as create transnational collaborations to achieve innovative results.
If you are a UdeM professor/researcher and have been approached by a partner within this program, please contact the Frida Anbar, International Affairs Advisor at the IAO, since partner countries are subject to specific conditions.
