Grants for Education & Training: Erasmus+ and foreign scholarship funders

The grants week session on Wednesday, 11 October will focus on the various grants that are available for mobility of students and staff (inbound and outbound) for education and training, capacity building and internationalization of the curriculum.

The morning programme will focus on Erasmus+

  • What are the EU’s ambitions on cooperation in Europe and worldwide?
  • How instrumental is Erasmus+ to attract talented students to UG and give opportunities to UG students to study abroad
  • What project funding is available and how can these projects support our internationalisation ambitions? What does it mean to run a project?

The afternoon programme will focus on national and foreign funding schemes that support talented students and PhD to study in Groningen. The region experts will introduce the outlines of these funding schemes and discuss with you the relevance of these programmes for your graduate school or department in table sessions.
