EC Grant

The European Commission has awarded the EUI a grant under the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM) programme, a strategic step in aligning with the EUI Strategy 2019-2024.

Funded by the EU external action instruments, the International Credit Mobility (ICM) is a part of the Erasmus+ programme that also involves countries across the world which are not associated to Erasmus+. Through ICM, universities in Europe can set up mobility agreements with universities around the world to send and receive students and staff.

For the first time, the EUI submitted a project proposal under the Erasmus+ ICM call 2023 to foster the incoming and outgoing mobility of students, researchers, faculty, and academic staff with the following universities: University of Tirana (Albania), University of Cape Town (South Africa), Makerere University (Uganda), and University of West Indies (Caribbean).

Consequently, the EUI has been awarded a sum of €301,740 to implement 71 incoming and outgoing mobilities with the aforementioned universities, over a period of three years. The EUI External Relations and International Mobility Offices are responsible for the implementation of the project, in coordination with the EUI Academic Units and relevant EUI Services.

The Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility programme represents an opportunity to strengthen the EUI's relations with partner institutions in priority regions, such as the Western Balkans and Africa, where the EUI has already established either partnerships or fruitful relationships, which could lead to long-term collaborations in the near future.

More importantly, this achievement highlights the EUI's commitment to fostering academic cooperation, marking a significant step towards global skills and competences, as well as supporting the professional and personal development of higher education professionals, and fostering a multicultural learning environment.
