Inter-institutional agreements

Inter-institutional agreements for mobility between institutions

The European Commission has published the models of the inter-institutional agreement that can be signed between two or more higher education institutions (HEIs), so providing for the possibility of mobilities between groupings of institutions.

  • For mobility between HEIs in Programme Countries, both or all of them must be holders of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education;
  • For mobility between HEIs in Programme and Partner Countries (among them Serbia), the Programme Country HEIs must have the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education and the Partner Country HEIs must agree to the principles laid down in the charter text via the inter-institutional agreement;

By signing an inter-institutional agreement, the institutions involved agree to cooperate for the exchange of students and / or staff in the context of Erasmus+ (KA1).

They commit themselves to respect the quality requirements of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education in all aspects of the organisation and management of the mobility and agree on a series of quantitative and qualitative issues to ensure mobility of high quality and impact.

It is recommended that HEIs from Programme and Partner countries sign this agreement once they are selected for funding for international mobility, and in any case before the mobility takes place.

A model of an inter-institutional agreement which can enable the exchange among programme and partner countries (including Serbia) is available on:  http://ec.europa.eu/education/opportunities/higher-education/quality-framework_en.htm#inter-institutional_agreements
