The Erasmus + program between the University of Brescia and two Israeli Institutions: Technion E Bar-Ilan University, has been approved. This program allows the continue mobility of Staff and MS and PhD students towards the two countries. The Optimib project promoted the involvement of the Technion institute, which is an established Multidisciplinary center of excellence. From 22 October 2019, organisations participating or wishing to participate in the Erasmus+ or European Solidarity Corps actions managed by a National Agency have to manage their organisation’s information through a new organisation registration system. This new system, accessible through the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps platform, makes it easier for most organisations to register and to participate with less information requested.

For more information about the new platform, please see the changes to registration page.

Organisations wanting to participate in Erasmus+ may engage in a number of development and networking activities, including strategic improvement of the professional skills of their staff, organisational capacity building, and creating transnational cooperative partnerships with organisations from other countries in order to produce innovative outputs or exchange best practices. In addition, organisations facilitate the learning mobility opportunities for students, education staff, trainees, apprentices, volunteers, youth workers and young people. The benefits for involved organisations include an increased capacity to operate at an international level, improved management methods, access to more funding opportunities and projects, increased ability to prepare, manage, and follow-up projects, as well as a more attractive portfolio of opportunities for learners and staff at participating organisations.
