For higher education institutions based in a partner country, the institution must be accredited by the national accreditation body. As they are not entitled to obtain an ECHE, they must also have concluded an interinstitutional agreement with their partners in the programme countries, which are in line with the principles of the ECHE in4. Students and staff members receiving a zero grant under EU funds are mobile participants who do not benefit from an EU grant for travel and stay, but who also meet all the mobility criteria for students and staff and who enjoy all the advantages of being an Erasmus+ student and staff. They can benefit from a regional, national or other subsidy to contribute to their mobility costs. The number of mobile participants receiving a zero grant from EU funds for the entire mobility period is used in the statistics on the performance indicator of the allocation of the EU budget between countries, both for mobility within programme countries and for mobility between programmes and partner countries. The bulk of the budget for this action will support activities relating to mobility between programme countries. However, a limited amount of resources available for this action may finance international activities between the Programme and all partner countries around the world, with the exception of regions 5 and 12 (see the “Eligible countries” section in Part A of this guide). Only participants who are entitled to a standard travel grant participating in mobility between Programme Countries are entitled to exceptional fees for expensive travel. The EU grant for students depends on their mobility flow: the host organisation must be a higher education institution from the programme country, holding an Erasmus Higher Education Charter, with which the CEU has signed a bilateral agreement in a specific area of education. Please consult the list of current partner universities on the ACRO website: acro.ceu.edu/erasmus-bilateral-agreements-department All organisations from participating countries (which send and receive) must receive an ECHE. All organisations in partner countries must be recognised by the competent authorities and have signed interinstitutional agreements with their partners in the Programme Countries prior to mobility. Finally, higher education institutions are free to apply for 100% staff mobility, 100% student mobility, or a combination of these, provided that this meets the secondary criteria defined by the National Agency (see section below). In the case of mobility between programmes and partner countries: EUR 350 per participant Beneficiaries benefiting from Erasmus+ educational mobility should keep boarding passes/train tickets/other tickets to be submitted together with the mobility documents.
Travel services that are not directly related to Erasmus+ educational mobility, such as trips to conferences or other visits before/after Erasmus+ mobility, are not eligible. In all cases, beneficiaries are contractually obliged to provide such quality services and their performance is monitored and verified by the national agencies, also taking into account feedback from students and staff via the mobility tool+ directly accessible to national agencies and the Commission. . . .
