EU seeks networking platform for Erasmus master’s scheme


Platform is intended to promote knowledge sharing among academics and administrators

The EU is looking for a contractor to set up a networking platform for its Erasmus Mundus academic mobility scheme for master’s students.

A call for applications said the platform will facilitate bottom-up exchange among academics and administrators involved in the scheme, which is part of the wider academic mobility programme Erasmus+.

Institutions involved in Erasmus Mundus have been calling for a platform for knowledge sharing because they have not had a systematic way of networking since the scheme’s creation in 2004, according to the Czech National Agency for International Education and Research, which shared details of the call.

The platform will allow institutions involved in the scheme to connect not only with each other but also with the European Commission and the European Education and Culture Executive Agency.

The contractor selected will receive around €3.5 million to carry out the work.
