Erasmus Mundus India and Asia regional mobility programmes 2013

Kerala students

On July, 10, 2013, the European Commission’s Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) decided upon the 2013 round of the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 – Strand 1 – Partnership programme, EU’s flagship programme aimed at promoting the attractiveness of the European Higher Education system and third country cooperation and partnerships. The new programmes for mobility activities will start during the academic year 2013–2014. The scholarship programme is open for students on undergraduate, master, doctoral and post-doctoral level as well as for university staff in academic or administrative positions from Asia to Europe only. EACEA received 180 proposals under Action 2 – Erasmus Mundus Partnerships, Strand I, out of which 57 projects were selected for funding.
See the Call for proposals.
See the South Asia related Erasmus Mundus consortia 2012.

Lot No. 11 (corresponding to Lot 9 in 2012!) is primarily devoted to South Asia, where the proposals should include universities in at least three of the following group A countries: Afghanistan, Bhutan, Nepal, Pakistan, and Bangladesh; besides at least two of the following group B countries: Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Philippines, Thailand, China, and North Korea. Four projects were selected, two of which have Swedish partner universities, Mälardalen and Uppsala respectively. More details below.

Lot No. 12 (corresponding to Lot 10 in 2012!) on the other hand is primarily devoted to South-East Asian countries, but also also gives the possibility to include Sri Lanka, India and/or Maldives as group B countries.  Four projects were selected, out of which one includes Indian and Srilankan universities 

Lot No. 13 is devoted to India. Lund University’s application was successful, which means that Lund University will coordinate a consortium entitled EMINTE (Erasmus Mundus India To Europe), in which also Uppsala University is a partner.

The other European partner universities are University of Leuven, Belgium; Freie University of Berlin, Germany; University College Dublin, Ireland; University of Trieste, Italy; University of Warsaw, Poland; University of Ljubljana, Slovenia; University of Deusto, Spain; and University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
