ICM Call 2015

Date: in 12 pts

All levels (short cycle, Bachelor, Master, PhD) All disciplinesStudents: 3 months (or academic term) to 12 monthsStaff: 5 days to 2 monthsTypes and duration

Date: in 12 pts

Up to 12 months per study cycle so a student can be funded for 12 months during Bachelors and an additional 12 months during Masters etc etc.

Inter-institutional agreements fix mobility flows & conditions - signed before mobility

Learning Agreement for students

Mobility Agreement for staff

Mobility based on agreements

Credit mobility building upon previous experiences in:Erasmus Mundus Action 2,ICI-ECP, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink, Marie Curie, Nationally funded bilateral mobility schemes with Partner Countries

Learning Agreement with students is explicit about language support offered by sending/receiving host

European HEIs apply on behalf of the partnership to their National Agency16 or 24 months to organise mobilitiesBudget = Organisation supportLiving AllowanceTravelManaging mobility

Date: in 12 pts

Organisation Support = 350 EUR per participant Living Allowance = monthly unit cost for students or daily unit cost for staff;Travel = unit cost based on distance.

Programme Country beneficiaries will receive the entire budget and can make flexible arrangements with their Partner HEIs on how to manage the budget this should be encoded in the IIA.

121.3m = 20,000 mobilities

20,000 mobilities divided by the 33 National Agencies

Each NA will publish how much budget they have for each of the 10 envelopes and whether there are any restrictions attached to these budgets.

Deadline: 4 March 2015Partner Countries: discuss inter institutional agreements with Programme Country partnersRead the Guide for form How to apply

The Guide for Experts gives more details about what the evaluators are expecting to for each of the 4 award criteria and it is crucial to have read and understood this document before preparing an application.

Indicate the specific partner HEIs and explain the benefit to both Programme and Partner Country institutions

Not useful to apply for mobility with every country imaginable they will have to demonstrate the relevanceIf newcomers: start with staff mobility. For more "complicated" exchanges that require recognition, we advise to build on previous experience, knowing the partnersSecondary criteria24 months recommendedBe precise in your quality questions!

The budget available for mobility between Programme and Partner Countries is divided between different regions of the world in 11 budgetary envelopes and the size of each budgetary envelope is different. Further information on the amounts available under each budgetary envelope will be published on the National Agencies' websites.

In general the funds will have to be used in a geographically balanced way. The EU has set a number of targets regarding geographical balance and priorities that have to be attained at European level over the whole duration of the programme (2014-2020). The targets do not have to be attained by individual higher education institutions, but National Agencies will take these targets into account in order to allocate the available budget.In addition, higher education institutions are encouraged to work with partners in the poorest and least developed Partner Countries.The National Agency may fund mobilities with a Partner Country that comes later in the regional ranking, when it is necessary to ensure geographical balance within that region, as defined by the geographical targets mentioned above

These are the geographical targets set for mobility between Programme and Partner Countries at EU level by 2020:With Neighbouring countries (East and South), mobility should be mainly inbound to Europe: no more than 10% of the mobility should be outbound to these countries. This does not apply to Russia; With Developing Asia and Latin America, 25% of the mobility should be organised with the least developed countries of the region. These countries are:For Asia: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, Nepal, Bhutan and Myanmar;For Latin America: Bolivia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Paraguay;No more than 30% of the budget available for Asia should be spent on mobility with China and India, And no more than 35 % available for Latin America on Brazil and Mexico.

Due to the requirement to carry out mobilities with countries in regions 6, 7, 8,10 and 11 that contribute to development assistance, mobility for short-, first- and second cycle students is limited to inbound mobility from Partner to Programme Countries. Outbound mobility towards these regions is only available at doctoral level and for staff. Indicative only. Subject to the provisions of the revised Cotonou Partnership Agreement and multiannual financial framework 2014-2020.See section "eligible countries" in Part A of this Guide.
