Foundation Tempus is organising a Training and Cooperation Activities (TCA) event, titled ”Digital implementation of Erasmus+ mobility projects in higher education – introducing the European Student Card Initiative”.
The virtual event will be organised on Friday, 9 July 2021, from 11:00 until 14:30 hours, via Microsoft Teams.
Preliminary agenda of the event can be found via this link.
The European Student Card (ESC) is an initiative that aims to digitise and simplify administrative processes at higher education institutions (HEIs), and which are related to the implementation of Erasmus + mobility projects in higher education.
This initiative will provide students with the opportunity to identify and register electronically at higher education institutions in Europe before, during and after mobility, eliminating the need to complete registration procedures by visiting the premises of the institution and removing administrative barriers for both students and for higher education institutions easily and securely.
By participating in this initiative, higher education institutions will gain significant opportunities that will greatly facilitate their work on the administration of Erasmus+ mobility projects in higher education.
Our online TCA event is envisaged as a way of bringing the HEIs closer to the ESC initiative, presenting them with its specificities, but also providing a good practice example that can instruct the event participants on the best way to implement the ESC initiative on an institutional level.
The event participants will be able to discern between the ESC initiative and its constitutive parts – Erasmus Without Paper (and especially the Erasmus Dashboard), Online Learning Agreement (OLA), the European Student Identifier (MyAcademicID) and the Erasmus+ App.
They should also learn about the benefits, but also the obligations brought upon by the ESC initiative, from an administrative perspective.
Finally, the event participants will learn how the implementation of the ESC initiative looks from an institutional standpoint, but equally important, how they should administer Erasmus+ mobilities via the Erasmus Dashboard.
The event is oriented towards representatives of higher education institutions (HEIs), holders of Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE), dealing with the Erasmus+ mobility projects and international cooperation in general.
We welcome members of HEIs’ international relations offices, but also members of the HEI management, tasked with duties related to the international cooperation and the Erasmus+ programme
If you are working at a HEI in one of the Erasmus+ Programme countries and you are interested in taking part in the event, you can register for the event, via this registration form, by 23:59 hours on Wednesday 30 June 2021 at the latest.
Late entries will not be considered.
