LLP - Erasmus


Erasmus programme is an European Union education and training  programme which aims to increase the quality of higher education in Europe. For this purpose, the Programme promotes the co-operations between higher education institutions in Europe. These partnerships and mobility activities are financially supported by the Programme.
