Erasmus Without Paper: Connecting systems to connect cultures

The digitalisation of Erasmus+ paperwork, which started as a grassroots initiative 10 years ago, is now a cornerstone of the mobility scheme. This session will illustrate how the higher education community set out to digitalise Erasmus+ mobility processes and what it means now that Erasmus Without Paper is a reality. Speakers from the European Commission and the Erasmus Without Paper consortium will discuss the next steps and how to ensure that no one is left behind.
