Tver State Medical University and University of Saarland (Germany) signed inter-institutional agreement for the exchange of students and staff in the context of the Erasmus+ Programme.
The Erasmus+ aims to support actions in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. Erasmus+ replaces the previous programmes bringing together: The Lifelong Learning Programme, The Youth in Action Programme, The Erasmus Mundus Programme, Alfa, Edulink, Tempus, etc. The Erasmus+ gives opportunities to students, trainees, staff and volunteers to spend a period abroad to increase their skills and employability. It supports organizations to work in transnational partnership and to share innovative practices in the fields of education, training and youth. Erasmus+ also includes a strong international dimension (cooperation with partner countries) notably in the field of higher education, which opens the programme to institutional cooperation and mobility of young people and staff worldwide. The centralized actions are managed at a European level by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) located in Brussels, the decentralized actions are managed in each programme country by National Agencies that are appointed by their national authorities.
