Opportunities for organizations
The Erasmus+ programme differentiates between EU countries and third countries associated to the programme and third countries non-associated to the programme, as regards possible modalities of participation of their institutions. Third countries associated to the programme are North Macedonia, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Serbia, Norway and Turkey. Third countries non-associated to the programme can be those countries neighbouring the EU, including Montenegro, as well as all the other countries in the world.
Promotion and implementation of Erasmus+ programme in Montenegro, as far as education parts are concerned, is delegated to the National Erasmus + Office in Montenegro.
The Erasmus+ programme has three Key Actions and two separate parts – Jean Monnet and Sport.
Higher education institutions from Montenegro can participate in projects that can provide scholarship schemes for the exchange of students, academic and administrative staff with higher education institutions from the EU countries.
KA2- Erasmus Mundus Action
This action aims at fostering excellence and worldwide internationalisation of higher education institutions via study programmes – at Master course level – jointly delivered and jointly recognised by higher education institutions (HEIs) established in Europe, and open to institutions in other countries of the world.
KA2 – COOPERATION AMONG ORGANISATIONS AND INSTITUTIONS
This Key Action supports:
• Partnerships for Cooperation, including Cooperation Partnerships and Small-scale Partnerships;
• Partnerships for Excellence, including Centres for Vocational Excellence and Erasmus Mundus Action;
• Partnerships for Innovation, including Alliances and Forward-looking projects;
• Capacity Building projects in the fields of higher education, vocational education and training, youth and sport;
• Not-for-profit European sport events.
The Actions supported under this Key Action are expected to contribute significantly to the priorities of the programme, to bring positive and long-lasting effects on the participating organisations, on the policy systems in which such Actions are framed as well as on the organisations and persons directly or indirectly involved in the organised activities.
KA3 – SUPPORT TO POLICY DEVELOPMENT AND COOPERATION
Key Action 3 provides support to policy cooperation at European Union level, thereby contributing to the implementation of existing policies and the development of new policies, which can trigger modernisation and reforms at European Union, and systems’ level, in the fields of education, training youth and sport.
