Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange for Youth in Europe and the Southern Mediterranean Launched

Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange is a ground-breaking project enabling youth in Europe and the Southern Mediterranean to engage in meaningful intercultural experiences online as part of their formal or non-formal education. There are several activities available for universities in Europe and the Southern Mediterranean to involve students and staff in Virtual Exchange and thus enhance their internationalization-at-home strategies.

The project and all its activities are now fully operational, with an increasing number of professors and students taking part in Virtual Exchange experiences from a number of European and South Mediterranean countries. Specifically, among the South Mediterranean region, participants come mostly from Jordan, Tunisia and Morocco, while other countries are starting to participate. All in all, students and professors that are taking part in the activities are finding them extremely inspiring and useful.

All information about the project and its activities can be found on the Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange Hub. Participating is simple and totally free of charge: once you have decided which activity suits you or your organisation/institution best, you can express your interest by filling the forms available for each activity, and you will be contacted by the activity organisers regarding the registration process.

 

This flagship programme is established under a contract with the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency, financed by the European Union’s budget, and it is implemented by a consortium composed of Search for Common Ground, Anna Lindh Foundation, UNIMED, Sharing Perspectives Foundation, Soliya, UNICollaboration, Kiron Open Higher Education, and Migration Matters.
