Committed to the Erasmus+ programme, Université Paris-Saclay offers its teacher-researchers and researchers training opportunities to enrich their teaching and research practices, and enables its staff to benefit from mobility opportunities in Europe.
A team of coordinators within the component institutions and associate institutions of the university supports Erasmus+ project initiators. Among other actions, they have organised the Erasmus Days of Université Paris-Saclay every year since 2018 in order to inform teacher-researchers and researchers about the funding opportunities offered by Erasmus+ and the internationalisation practices they can apply to their teaching methods for the benefit of students. The team also works together on the establishment of tools and workshops to help staff submit Erasmus+ projects.
The Erasmus+ programme is crucial to enrich training practices and can foster the emergence of research projects: staff can develop cooperation mobility projects in Europe aiming at reinforcing the skills and employability of students. The programme also supports pedagogical innovation and the internationalisation of education, all the while encouraging cooperation with European and non-European countries. A mobility experience is the opportunity to exchange and cooperate with partners, both within and beyond Europe.
Université Paris-Saclay has obtained its Erasmus+ Charter for 2021-2027, which enables the establishment of cooperation agreements with HE institutions worldwide who have also signed the Charter.
Erasmus+ funding opportunities
With a budget of 14.7 billion euros for the 2014-2020 period, the Erasmus+ programme is organised around three Key Actions and two specific activities: Mobility (Key Action 1), Cooperation for Innovation and Exchange of Good Practices (Key Action 2), Support for Policy Reform (Key Action 3), Jean Monnet activities and Sports activities.
Through these three Key Actions, the programme offers a variety of opportunities to develop collaborations and acquire new skills in the area of higher education. It is a tool dedicated to the internationalisation of HE institutions.
