The role of Erasmus in higher education
Erasmus, the European Union’s flagship mobility and cooperation programme in the field of education and training, was established in 1987. Its objective is to enhance the quality of higher education and strengthen its European dimension, in particular by increasing student and staff mobility. It enriches students’ academic experience as well as helping them to develop intercultural skills and self-reliance. Staff exchanges contribute to developing individuals’ professional skills and the capacity of the institutions involved to strengthen their international cooperation.
