Erasmus Mundus promotional activities
During the period while the 2014-2015 application call for the Erasmus Mundus scholarships was open, the Foundation Tempus organised about 20 promotional events on higher education institutions in Serbia. Those info events were held in all major university centres in Serbia – Belgrade, Novi Sad, Niš, Kragujevac, Novi Pazar.
Also, our office took part in many events organised by other institutions. Some of these events where we promoted Erasmus Mundus scholarships are:
- EU Projects Fair in Belgrade and Nis, organised by EU Info Centre
- Economic Youth Forum, organised by SCSU Student Conference of Serbian Universities
- Belgrade Youth Fair, organised by Youth NGO EKOF Media Group
- Europe Day, organised by EU Info Centre
Consultations and “Open Door” programme for interested scholarship applicants
During last open call period, our office realized more than 300 individual consultations with persons interested in applying for the scholarships. Interested applicants could visit our office during the scheduled work-hours and get all the needed information and support in preparing applications.
New Erasmus Mundus partnerships (exchange networks)
From 2014 there will be two new partnerships (exchange networks) with participation of institutions from Serbia: TECH-WB and SUNBEAM, while two previously existent networks, SIGMA A and EUROWEB, acquired funding for the next period.
It is expected that in the next few months (probably during autumn 2014), these networks will publish their call for applications for students and teaching / administrative staff interested to come for an exchange to Serbia .
