International Credit Mobility

The aim: why this e-Booth?

This e-Booth provides general information about the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility and project examples. This Erasmus+ key action (KA107) has supported mobility of staff and students going to or coming from most parts of the world since 2015. Participants are welcome to explore the opportunities offered by this key action, which will continue to be part of the new Erasmus+ programme as of 2022.

Background info

International credit mobility is currently offering opportunities for staff and student mobility (including traineeships) in most regions of the world. Mobilities are funded with individual support, travel support and organisational support. The key action is highly competitive and all applications have to go through a qualitative assessment.

Synergies with other key actions is usually considered an asset when applying for EU funds. For project coordinators of CBHE projects, international credit mobility may represent an opportunity to build on projects to prepare for activities such as staff and student mobility.

Staff for training and teaching, doctoral mobility and short- and long-term student mobility can be funded with international credit mobility. For those CBHE projects that have cooperation with the labour market, funding of traineeships may be of relevance.

To be able to benefit from the possible synergies it is important to be aware of the opportunities available within Erasmus+. For beneficiaries with cooperation interests in partner countries, International Credit Mobility represents an excellent possibility to kick-off, complement, or sustain partnerships within the field of higher education.

Current Challenges

The priorities of simplification and inclusion in the next Erasmus+ programme also apply to international credit mobility. We aim for a simpler application procedure and management of funds, stronger focus on inclusion, and more opportunities within the key action such as traineeships for recent graduates and short-term mobility.
