Erasmus+ is a European Union’s programme providing financial support for cooperation projects in the following three fields: education and training, youth and sport.
The Erasmus+ Programme covers the period 2014 to 2020. The total budget allocated for the whole period is 14.7 billion Euros.
Within Key Action 1 (KA1), higher education institution staff can travel to EU countries for the purpose of attending educational courses or teaching.
Higher education institutions have a number of possibilities for Key Action 2 projects such as:
KA2 – Capacity building in higher education, and
KA2 – Strategic partnerships,
as well as other types of projects within the Erasmus+, Programme, including Jean Monnet. Staff in institutions involved in these types of projects can participate in their implementation.
CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Programme for University Studies) is a Central European student and academic staff exchange programme. This programme provides opportunities for student and staff mobility and focuses on improving education at higher education institutions. CEEPUS offers exchanges in the form of credit mobility, research visits, teaching provision, and so-called summer schools.
CEEPUS member states are: Austria, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Hungary, Moldavia, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Serbia, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro and the Czech Republic.
The duration of mobility is directly linked to the type and category of mobility for which the candidate is applying. In general, CEEPUS allows longer stays of one or two semesters for students in credit mobility, but also short-term stays lasting up to three months, with the aim of conducting research and writing a master’s or a doctoral thesis, as well as so-called short-term excursions such as winter and summer schools (lasting up to 6 days). As regards teaching mobility, it can last for a minimum of five working days with obligatory 6 hours of lecturing or mentoring per week, but lecturers will often stay as long as one month.

The Foundation Tempus organises workshops on how to write a project application to support institutions and individuals in the higher education sector.
Workshops for higher education institutions:
КА2 – Capacity building in higher education (CBHE). These workshops are designed for representatives of higher education institutions planning to apply for CBHE projects under the Erasmus+ Programme as coordinators or to participate as partners.
Workshop participants will learn about the following topics:
– development of the Logical Framework Matrix
– preparation of a detailed project description
– development of a project workplan and budget
As of the 2018 Call, higher education institutions from Serbia can also participate in strategic partnership projects for higher education as coordinators and the Foundation Tempus organizes workshops on writing project proposals in this field starting from November 2017.
All workshops organized by the Foundation Tempus are free of charge. Participants are required to fill in the registration form and are given an attendance certificate at the end of the workshop.
The Info Days are organised around the time of the publication of the Erasmus+ Call for Project Proposals and the National Call for Submission of Erasmus+ Projects to provide information about participation in the Erasmus+ Programme to all interested institutions and individuals in the education and youth sectors. Calls for proposals are normally published in October, when the Info Days are also organised.
