Funding through Erasmus Print

Dear All,

As we all know there are residents who would like to raise funds to visit training center(s) in other countries to complete their residency programmes, or young veterinarians who would like to be able to enroll in a residency programme, however this would necessitate visiting one or more centers abroad, which may be impossible because of the cost involved. In such cases the possibility to raise funds would be extremely helpful. In addition, in this regard it would be of great help if Diplomates could go to another center, especially where a resident follows an alternate programme, and to countries where there are no or insufficient number of European diplomates.

The Executive Committee has looked for possibilities to achieve this through the Erasmus+ programme. Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. It gives opportunities to students, trainees, staff and volunteers to spend a period abroad to increase their skills and employability. The seven year programme will have a budget of 14.7 billion; As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across the Education, Training, Youth, and Sport sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules. Details may be found by clicking the following links:

For your convenience I have attached the Erasmus+ Programme Guide. It seems that for residents and Diplomates working in Universities or other institutions, most suitable, for training at the specialist level, is the section on MOBILITY PROJECT FOR VET LEARNERS AND STAFF, pages 51-54 (VET stands for Vocational Education and Training). The duration for learners ranges from 2 weeks to 12 months, and for staff from 2 days to 2 months. The Executive Committee would urge you to inform all the Diplomates of your college.We hope in the near future to be able to give you more information.
