The Erasmus Mundus Action 2 is a cooperation and mobility programme in the area of higher education, launched in 2006 by the European Commission. The programme promotes the creation of partnerships between European and third-country Universities. Each partnership offers scholarships for exchanges between EU and non-EU universities.
The funding scheme of the EMA2 programme allows students, researchers, professors and administrative staff of Non-EU University to spend a mobility period in the EU University belonging to the partnership. The non Eu-Countries involved in the programme are grouped into "geographical windows" (so-called LOTs) according to their location and the regional policies of the EU.
Within the "LOTs" exist several partnerships, each of them composed of a maximum of 20 EU and Non-EU Universities. Student, researcher, professor and administrative staff nationals living in the relevant LOTs can apply for a mobility period in one of the EU university belonging to the partnership.
The amount of the scholarships ranges from 1,000 to 2500 euros according to the different categories.
The University of Bologna is involved in several EMA2 partnerships that may be of interest to you. Please take a look at them according to your nationality.
