The launch of the Erasmus+ programme generation 2021-27 saw the introduction of the new funding scheme for Blended Intensive Programmes (BIP) ,
offering HE institutions the opportunity to offer joint curricula in collaboration with partner universitiesfor students or staff to study together both virtually and for a short face-to-face period (5–30 days) .
*The UK no longer counts as an Erasmus+ programme country, but as a partner country. HE institutions from partner countries can also take part, but they will not receive any funding.
During the short physical group mobility (face-to-face) stage, the mobile participants receive the following grants:
Duration of stay
|Grant||Social top-up*||Green top-up**|
|Days 5–14||€ 70 per day||€ 100 one-off||€ 50 one-off|
|Days 15–30||€ 50 per day||€ 150 one-off|
*Students with special needs (disability level 20+) and students with child/ren
**Sustainable transport there and back (using low-emission means such as rail, bus or car-sharing)
Applications for “blended mobility” funding are submitted via the home institution’s International Office.
