Erasmus+ program

General information

Erasmus+ is a successor-program of several EU programs that took place in the period from 2007 to 2013. The Erasmus+ Program includes three key actions – KA1, KA2 and KA3 and two separate sections – Jean Monnet and Sport. Projects supported under Key Action 1 (KA1) are learning mobility projects, which include mobility for higher education students and staff.

Within the Erasmus+ program, the University of Belgrade has established successful cooperation with around 300 European universities and nearly 30 universities outside the EU, and this number increases every day. In February 2019, the Republic of Serbia became a fully-fledged member of the Erasmus+ Program and is now eligible, as a so called “program country”, to participate in all parts of the program.
