International Training Projects

Erasmus+ Higher Education framework Programme - 2014-2020

Official publication of calls for projects 2019 - info.erasmusplus.fr

It supports the development of actions in the context of international partnerships and to share innovative practices in the areas of education, training and youth.

Erasmus+ also has a significant international dimension, particularly in the field of higher education, which opens up the programme to institutional cooperation, student mobility and staffing activities at a global level.

More information is available on the official Erasmus+ website

The Erasmus+ charter

In the management of projects supported by the Erasmus+ programme for mobility within and outside Europe, Le Mans University complies with the principles set out in the Erasmus+ Charter which it obtained in 2014, as well as the associated Erasmus strategy. Therefore in terms of selection Le Mans University applies the principles of non-discrimination and equal opportunities, as well as access to the programme for participants with reduced mobility.


Funded mobility projects

As Le Mans University holds an Erasmus+ Charter, each year it submits a request for a grant from the Erasmus+ agency to finance study, teaching and training mobility in Europe and abroad.

2 types of project:

  • Mobility of higher education in Europe (see the “going abroad” section to access the list of eligible destinations)
  • International credit mobility

In order to support the internationalisation of European higher education institutions and to increase their attractiveness, since 2015 the European Commission has offered a new facility under Erasmus+, International Credit Mobility, which now offers the possibility of Erasmus+ mobility outside Europe. This provides the opportunity to arrange international mobility for students (study trips), teachers (teaching projects) and technical and administrative staff (training projects).

In Le Mans University, since 2015 International Credit Mobility has financed around 250 incoming and outgoing mobilities for students, doctoral students, administrative staff and teachers to 8 different countries (Mongolia, Thailand, Russia, Morocco, Tunisia, Ukraine, India, United States and Armenia) and 20 partner universities.

Current projects:

  • 2017 project involving 5 partner institutions in Armenia and Tunisia (Ref. 2017-1-FR01-KA107-036591)
  • 2018 project involving 4 partner institutions in Tunisia and in Cameroon (Ref. 2018-1-FR01-KA107-047338)

European cooperation projects

Le Mans University is a partner in two “Strategic Partnership” projects selected respectively in 2018 by the Erasmus+ national agencies of Poland and Lithuania:

  • TIWI project “Teaching ICT with Inquiry”: Le Mans University will take the lead in the development and implementation of learning activities relating to the training of 20 French teachers (teachers and student teachers) in primary and secondary education, in order to introduce them to the new teaching tools implemented within the framework of the STEM project.
  • Project ACOUCOU “Acoustic Courseware Platform”: The aim of this project is to create a professional partnership focussing on the development and promotion of vocational education and training through the use of modern teaching methods (dedicated digital platform). The partnership will focus on the professional development of engineers in the field of acoustics.
  • In line with its international policy, Le Mans University has chosen to become an associate partner of the REALISE (2016-2019) project, a strategic partnership of the Erasmus + programme coordinated by the Paul-Valéry Montpellier 3 University. Its purpose is to improve the implementation and recognition of staff mobility in order to optimise its impact on individuals as well as on institutions.
