Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. Erasmus+ combines previously separate EU programmes for lifelong learning, youth and sport, as well as programmes supporting cooperation between European universities.

The programme is made up of three key actions:

  • Key action 1 – Learning Mobility of Individuals
  • Key action 2 – Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices
  • Key action 3 – Support for policy reform

The TUHH has participated in the ERASMUS programme since its beginning.

The TUHH has also successfully applied for an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) for the new generation of EU educational programmes, which are combined under the Erasmus+ banner. The Charter is a prerequisite for all universities wishing to participate in Erasmus+ programmes between 2014 and 2021. The university’s Erasmus Charter was signed by the university president, Professor Antranikian in April 2014. The Charter is underpinned by the Erasmus Policy Statement.
