Erasmus+ in Israel
Israel is a Partner Country to the programme and therefore the following actions are open for participation to Israeli Institutions

 

Key Action 1: Mobility of Individuals
This Key Action provides different opportunities for students and staff to gain professional or learning experience abroad. Under this Action, students and staff can apply also for training, and teaching opportunities.
Moreover, this Key Action supports not only mobility, but also high-level integrated international programmes called Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees. These programmes delivered by consortia of higher education institutions that award scholarships to the best master students worldwide.


 

The European Union Program: ERASMUS+ KA107 ICM:

The Erasmus+ program allows new collaborations with European Universities.

Erasmus+ (KA1) agreements allows mobility of staff members (administrative and academic) and of students (for study or research), funded by the EU (through the partner European University).

BGU Staff members under these agreements may do one of the following:

1.     Travel to one of the partners universities

2.     Invite partners to visit at BGU for work/research together

3.     Send students (at all degree levels – depending on what mutually agreed with the partner university)

4.     Invite students from European Partner University

 

A BGU academic staff member interested in promotion of the signature of a new Erasmus+ agreement with a university with which he has already connections, is welcome to do so! The submission of a new proposal is done only by the International Relation Office of the European University! Submission deadline is each year at the beginning of February (Except for Universities that are committed to submit the proposal first to their Country Erasmus Center who do so in January).

This year submission deadline is: February 5, 2020.

 

Travel to one of the partners universities

BGU staff member may travel to an European University only after BGU has signed an Erasmus+ agreement with that University.
(An Erasmus+ Agreement with a European University is being signed only after the EU approval of the Erasmus+ Application done by the European University).

 

Travels may be for 2 different purposes:

  • - Training (for professional improvement)
  • - Teaching (the invited person has to teach minimum 8 frontal hours)

Minimum stay for an Erasmus+ visit is 5 working days (+ 2 traveling days).

The hosting program for a Teaching Erasmus+ Mobility must be of minimum 8 frontal teaching hours (this may be at seminars, part of an ongoing course, at graduate student special meeting, extracurriculum special guest lecture, a special professional presentation for staff members…etc)

 

Erasmus+ program funds are for the cover of travel expenses, living expenses as defined by the European Union. A fixed amount is allocated per mobility, and may vary in each country and University.

Each European University allocates a different number of "Spots" for teaching/training mobility to and from BGU.
