Erasmus+ is the new European Union program 2014-2020 for education, training, youth and sport that encourages college students, through scholarships, to attend Universities participant to the European program, where to take courses and exams related to their academic curriculum, or carry out studies for his thesis. Furthermore, Erasmus encourages the mobility of doctoral students. Each faculty of the University has set up bilateral agreements with other universities by providing a number of grants for student mobility. Erasmus grants are designed to allow the participants to attend courses, followed by relevant examinations, or to conduct internships, or for their partial/complete thesis preparation. The Erasmus period, ranging from a minimum of three months to a maximum of 12 months, begins on June 1 and ends on September 30. Students winners of the grant will receive an economic contribution, additional funds will be allocated for students in economically disadvantaged situations and students with disabilities.
