KA1 – Learning Mobility of Individuals - Erasmus Charter for Higher Education

The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) provides the general quality framework for European and international cooperation activities a higher education institution (HEI) may carry out within the Erasmus+ Programme. The award of an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education is a pre-requisite for all HEIs located in a Programme country and willing to participate in any of the three key activities of Erasmus+. For HEIs located in Partner countries, the ECHE is not required, and the quality framework will be established through inter-institutional agreements between HEIs.

A call for proposals for award of ECHE is held on annual basis. The ECHE is awarded to HEIs recognised by their National Authorities for the full remaining duration of Erasmus+ until the end of 2020. This means that HEIs awarded with an ECHE in the calls published in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 do not need to apply again.

Deadline: 31 March 2017
