Erasmus+ Erasmus Programme
Erasmus is the sub-programme aiming exchange of both students and staff as well as co-operation actions between higher education institutions across Europe.
The Programme is named after the humanist and theologian Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam (1465-1536) whose travels for work and study took in the era’s great centres of learning, including Paris, Leuven and Cambridge. By leaving his fortune to the University of Basel, he became a pioneer of the mobility grants, which now bear his name. Like the man, the Erasmus programme places great importance on mobility and furthering career prospects through learning.
