Erasmus Charter for Higher Education
What is the 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 may carry out within Erasmus+.
A valid ECHE is a pre-requisite for all higher education institutions located in a Programme country who wish to participate in the Erasmus+ programme.
For help with strengthening the ECHE compliance of your institution, consult the ECHE guidelines as well as the ECHE monitoring guide.
A call for proposals for the award of an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education is made on an annual basis. If you are a Higher Education Institution that is not currently an ECHE holder and would like information in relation to the application process, please contact us at email@example.com.
