About Erasmus

The Erasmus+ program is the EU’s program to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. The current program runs from 2014 to 2020. Its budget of EUR 14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain experience, and volunteer abroad.

The aim of Erasmus+ is to contribute to the European 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equality and inclusion, as well as the aims of ET2020, the EU’s strategic framework for education and training. Erasmus+ also aims to promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education.

The Erasmus program will continue for a new program period starting in 2021 running through to 2027 with an expected increase in its budget. 

The Erasmus program consist of the 27 member states of the EU plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, The Republic of North Macedonia, Norway, Serbia, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Together these countries are referred to as “Programme Countries”.

CBS has been part of the Erasmus+ Programme since its start in 2014 and before that in its EU predecessors. 

Since 2014, CBS has sent more than 2600 students on a mobility stay abroad, either at one of CBS’ European partner universities or on a traineeship funded by the Erasmus+ Programme. In the same timeframe, CBS has received more than 2900 incoming Erasmus+ students from our European partner universities.

CBS has since 2014 sent 24 staff members on an Erasmus funded staff mobility to one of CBS’ European partner universities, and has received numerous staff members as well from our partners.

Below you will find further information about the Erasmus opportunities for CBS students and staff members as well as information to prospective incoming students and staff.

CBS students and staff

Mobility opportunities

The Erasmus program offers several different mobility opportunities abroad for both CBS students and staff:

CBS bachelor and master students

The Erasmus program offers CBS students on both bachelor and master level the opportunity to go for a semester abroad at another university, or to undertake a traineeship in another European county (must be in an Erasmus+ Programme Country).

Exchange semester abroad

You must be selected by CBS International Office for an exchange semester at one of CBS’ European partner universities

You can find more information on my.cbs.dk about exchange and Erasmus+ for exchange.

Trainesship abroad

If you are going to do an internship/ traineeship abroad in another European country (must be in an Erasmus+ Programme Country) as part of your degree at CBS, you can apply for an Erasmus scholarship to help you finance your stay abroad.

You can find more information on my.cbs.dk about academic internship and on application procedures and deadlines for Erasmus+ for traineeships.

CBS PhD students

CBS PhD students can apply for an Erasmus scholarship if they wish to go on either a short or a longer mobility stays abroad in another European country. Depending on the duration and the nature of the wished mobility, PhD students can apply for either the Erasmus+ Student Mobility or the Erasmus+ Staff Mobility.

Erasmus+ Student Mobility

The Erasmus+ Student Mobility consist of two different parts, one for a study period and one for a traineeship (work placement).

The Erasmus+ for Student Mobility is recommended to PhD students who intent to do a mobility abroad for more than 2 months (maximum duration is 12 months). 

It is recommended that PhD students who wish to do so, apply for the Erasmus+ Student Mobility for Traineeships, as this can cover work placement at another HEI in Europe or another relevant enterprise in an Erasmus+ Programme Country.

You can find more information on my.cbs.dk about Erasmus+ for traineeships or contact CBS Erasmus Office at erasmus.intoff@cbs.dk.

Erasmus+ Staff Mobility

The Erasmus+ Staff Mobility consist of two different types, one for a teaching period and one for a training period, which can be carried out at one of CBS’ European partner universities.

The Erasmus+ for Staff Mobility is recommended to PhD students who intent to do a mobility abroad for less than 2 months. 

There are different requirements depending on which of the two types of program you wish to go on:

  • Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Teaching: The teaching period can last from 2 days to 2 months/60 days (excl. travel time), with a minimum of 8 hours teaching to be delivered per week (or part of the week)
  • Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Training: The staff training must be at least full-time for two consecutive days at least (excl. travel time) and 2 months/60 days at the very most

You can find more information on CBS Share about Erasmus+ Staff Mobility or contact CBS Erasmus Office at erasmus.intoff@cbs.dk.

Please note that CBS applies for funding from EU each year. There is therefore no guarantee that Erasmus funding is available to all applicants, as it depends on the number of applicants and the funding CBS receives in a given year. It is advised that PhD students contact the Erasmus Office as soon as possible to inquire about the possibility for funding for a Student Mobility for Traineeship, a Staff Mobility for Teaching or a Staff Mobility for Training.

CBS Staff (VIP)

Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Teaching (Teacher Exchange)

Teacher Exchange, means that a CBS’ teacher go on exchange to one of CBS’ partner universities in Europe.

Requirement: The teaching period can last from 2 days to 2 months (excl. travel time), with a minimum of 8 hours teaching to be delivered per week (or part of the week).

Erasmus+ Staff Mobility for Training (Staff Exchange)

Staff at CBS may visit a partner university, a company or an organisation to acquire knowledge or specific know-how from experiences and good practices abroad, as well as developing practical skills relevant for their current job and their professional development. The staff training can for instance consist of “tailing”/“job shadowing” a colleague at a partner university, or attending a course or workshop relevant to the staff members’ everyday tasks at CBS. 

Requirement: The staff training must be at least full-time for two consecutive days at least (travels excluded) and 2 months/60 days at the very most.

External funding for CBS researchers

The Erasmus Programme offers CBS researchers the opportunity to apply for external funding for projects.

Under the Erasmus Programme, there are three key actions that are relevant for CBS researchers:

Key Action 2: Innovation and good practices

Key Action 2 is designed to develop the education, training, and youth sectors through five main activities, where the following are relevant for CBS researchers:

  • Strategic partnerships to support innovation in the sector as well as joint initiatives to promote cooperation, peer-learning, and the sharing of experience.
  • Knowledge Alliances to foster innovation in and through higher education together with businesses, and beyond, contributing to new approaches to teaching and learning, entrepreneurship in education, and the modernisation of higher education systems in Europe.
  • Capacity-building projects in the field of higher education to support the modernisation, accessibility, and internationalisation of higher education in Partner Countries.

Organisations participating in these opportunities should benefit from new approaches to education and training, a more professional and capable professional environment within their organisation, and an increased capacity to work at an EU or international level.

For more information about Key Action 2, please check here.

Key Action 3: Support for policy reform

Opportunities under this Key Action contribute to supporting the overall EU policy agenda, the Education and Training 2020 cooperation framework, and the Youth Strategy.

Organisations will contribute to improving the quality of education, training, and youth systems in Europe, as well as promoting transnational learning and cooperation between authorities. They will also contribute to developing the basis for evidence based policy-making, as well as supporting networks and tools for policy implementation.

Organisations will also contribute to improving the involvement of young people in democratic life and their engagement with politicians.
