Erasmus Without Paper

Erasmus Without Paper

Erasmus Without Paper is part of a wider suite of digital initiatives designed to facilitate the creation of a European Education Area by 2025.


As outlined in the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education, Higher Education Institutions should implement digital management of student mobility.


Inter-Institutional Agreements

The academic year 2021/2022 has been considered a transitional year for Inter-Institutional Agreements. This transitional year has been extended until the end of 2022 after which digital readiness(which is an ECHE commitment) will become subject to monitoring.

Erasmus Without Paper is setting up a Centralised Helpdesk to provide support to HEIs. Details on the helpdesk will available here once it is launched.
