The Erasmus+ Program Presentation

National Erasmus+ Office Director, Mr. Suad Muhibić held a presentation for students and university staff.


Erasmus + is the new EU program for education, training, youth and sport, which replaced the seven existing programs: Lifelong Learning Programme (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius and Grundtvig), Youth in Action, Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink and the Cooperation program with industrialized countries. The Erasmus + program will last seven years - from 2014 to 2020.
