National Erasmus+ Office - Lebanon


Cluster Meeting for ICM Managers

Thursday, September 27, 2018

In the framework of Erasmus+ monitoring policy, The National Erasmus+ Office in Lebanon is organising  a cluster meeting gathering all those units of Lebanese universities in charge of managing Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility projects with EU and Programme Countries institutions.

The aim of this meeting is to have a stocktaking on the implementation of ICMs during the last 3 years, exchange of practices between the different modes of implementation, discuss obstacles and draw lessons and recommendations. The meeting aims at gathering those universities that have already been involved in managing ICM projects as well as those that are potential beneficiaries of such projects.

The meeting intends to target also universities that have not yet benefited from such mobility and exchange projects in order to get them more informed about the mobility opportunities offered by Erasmus+ and learn from those who have been implementing mobility projects since 2016.
