Description of the project


The Erasmus+ Programme

The Erasmus+ programme aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernising Education, Training, and Youth work.

Erasmus+ provides opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad.

Erasmus+ supports transnational partnerships among Education, Training, and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.

It also supports national efforts to modernise Education, Training, and Youth systems.

Erasmus+ brings together seven existing EU programmes in the fields of Education, Training, Youth and Sport. As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across the Education, Training, Youth, and Sport sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules.



Coordinated by the University of Porto, Portugal, the MOBILE 2 BE Project, approved in June 2020 and financially supported by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ Programme, aims at fostering the mutual enrichment and a better understanding between Portugal and specifically 11* partner countries, through student, academic and administrative staff mobility.

Within the 3 years of duration of the project, 139 scholarships will be granted to students and staff from the different programme and partner institutions.

Before the start of any activity it will be signed an Inter-Institutional Agreement between the University of Porto and each one of the 27 partner institutions from the 11 countries: Canada, Cape Verde, Egypt, India, Kazakhstan, Macao, Morocco, Mozambique, Peru, United States and Uzbekistan.

All the activities under Mobile2BE Project must end in July 2023.

Important Information: the "travel distance" represents the linear distance between the city where the university of origin and the city where the host university are located. This is calculated automatically by a website indicated by the European Commission and cannot be subject to any change. The financial support allocated to the "travel distance" is the maximum allowed by the Erasmus+ Programme and is intended to contribute to the round trip back between the home and host institutions. In the event that the assigned value is insufficient to pay for the desired trip, the scholarship holder must find other sources of funding.
