Eranet-Plus:

Euro-Russian Academic

Network-Plus

Objectives

The Euro-Russian Academic Network Plus (ERANET Plus) is built upon the solid foundation of the ERANET-MUNDUS2 project. The objectives of the project are:

  • To create lasting associations between Russian HEIs and the European HEIs, providing each institution the experience of the European model and guidance on how to develop new standards.
  • To construct a stable mobility between Europe and Russia and to develop a solid framework for future collaborations.
  • To meet the disciplinary requirements of interdisciplinary research such as the natural sciences, geography and geology, economics and the social sciences, culture, language and philology, and engineering and technology.
  • To build bridges for scientists investigating Environmental Sustainability on Climate Change, to promote awareness of the problematic nature of these rapid changes, and to provide support to develop new networks related to the issue.
  • To create connections for international cooperation in civil rights and citizenship, sustainable development, and safety based on an economy and a society more ecologically motivated.
  • To promote awareness of the cultural and linguistic diversity that will guarantee an intercultural education, and find a remedy to the problematic language accreditation system in Russia.
  • To train new generations of teachers, doctors, researchers, and professors with a wide range of languages and broad cultural awareness.

Brief Description

The project, coordinated by the University of Barcelona, is composed of ten European institutions, ten Russian institutions, and five associated partners.

The number of mobility flows is 160. The total percentage of TG1 is 65% (counting for 104 of the scholarships awarded); TG2 will account for a 26% (41 scholarships); TG3 includes 9% of the scholarships (15 scholarships) awarded in the call.

The ERANET Plus project promotes a flexible mobility structure focused on the demand for specific subject areas. Therefore, all fields of study are covered: Agriculture Sciences; Architecture, Urban and Regional Planning; Art and Design; Business Studies, Management Science; Education, Teacher Training; Engineering, Technology; Geography, Geology; Humanities; Languages and Philology; Law; Mathematics, Informatics; Medical Sciences; Natural Sciences; Social Sciences; Communication and Information Science; and other areas of study. The diversity of languages, areas of study, and cultures covered by the programme is the cornerstone of this project, as it will provide a cornerstone for the involvement of the grantholders.
