Erasmus +

Erasmus + is the EU Programme for education, training, youth and sport, which supports the educational, professional and personal development of people in Europe and beyond, thereby contributing to sustainable growth, jobs and social cohesion and to strengthening European identity.

In addition to mobility, Erasmus + also supports cooperation projects and policy development, and is split into the following Actions:


Key Action 1: Learning Mobility
Key Action 3: Support to policy development and cooperation
Jean Monnet actions

Application process and contacts

Please note that all actions except for KA1 are managed by the DLE FSNF if the funding volume for the University of Vienna (or the total budget if the University of Vienna is coordinating) is ≥ 100.000 Euro, as they will need authorisation from the Rectorate.

If the funding volume is < 100.000 Euro, please contact your Faculty or Centre as the Dean/Head (or Vice-Dean/Vice-Head) should authorise your project application.

For KA 1 applications please contact the International Office.
