The Erasmus Mundus Programme

The Erasmus Mundus 2009-2013 Programme is a cooperation and mobility programme in the area of Higher Education, implemented by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA). In case of the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 – Strand 1 (EMA2 – STRAND 1), under which the ANGLE Project is being developed, the management is carried out under the supervision of the Directorate General EuropeAid (DG Aidco).

EMA2 – STRAND 1 main goals are:

  • to promote the European Higher Education;
  • to encourage the reinforcement and improvement of students’ career perspectives;
  • to favour the intercultural understanding through the cooperation with third countries, in harmony with the EU external policy objectives, in order to contribute to the sustainable development of the third countries’ Higher Education.

This strand includes partnerships between European and third countries’ Higher Education Institutions, exchange and mobility in several Higher Education levels, and also a scholarship system.

 

The ANGLE Partnership

The ANGLE Consortium comprises 9 European universities, 11 ACP Countries' Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and 32 Associations. This project is being implemented within the framework of the Erasmus Mundus, Action 2 – STRAND 1, Lot 15, ACP Countries.

Among this initiative’s main goals, one can point out:

  • The mutual enrichment and a better understanding between Europe and the ACP Countries, through the exchange of people, knowledge and skills at Higher Education level;  
  • The increase of international cooperation between European and ACP Countries’ HEIs, thus contributing to foster the socio-economical development of this region;  
  • The promotion of transparency and recognition of studies and qualifications at an international level.

To achieve these objectives, the project foresees 113 mobilities, divided in two cohorts.
