Erasmus+

The European Union created the program Erasmus+ (2021-2027) to encourage the exchange of students between EU countries and countries around the world. The Erasmus+ program includes a program entitled "International Credit Mobility" which funds short term student and staff mobility between European and Partner Countries.

WHAT IS ERASMUS+?                                             

The Erasmus+ ICM programme provides travel grants for students, faculty members, and administrative staff interested in visiting European higher education institutions to study, teach, or train. It encourages familiarisation with the target institutions and critical people in these institutions to promote international cooperation, improving the capabilities and modernization of teaching systems. The mobility programs offer scholarships for travel costs and a monthly allowance or grant ("Mobility Grants").

The Weizmann Institute has signed agreements with EU partner institutions as below, enabling students and staff from partner universities the opportunity for international study, training, or learning at the Institute and vice versa. If you want to establish a partnership with an EU Institution – please contact the IO Team at erasmus@weizmann.ac.il.
The Erasmus+ Programme promotes equal opportunities and inclusion for all participants regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, religion and belief, disability and chronic illness, and ethnic and social background.  

We currently have signed agreements with the following institutions:
