Collaboration within Europe has long been a field in which LiU’s work with internationalisation has been active. Central support is focussed on three areas – the ECIU University, Erasmus+ and Horizon Europe.
The ECIU University
The ECIU University is a pilot project financed within the framework of the European Commission’s European Universities initiative. It is intended to establish transboundary alliances of institutions of higher education within the EU to increase the mobility of students and co-workers, and to promote the quality, participation and competitiveness of higher education in the EU. LiU participates in several collaborations within the ECIU University, while within IO we participate in the project concerned with mobility.
The project provides a further possibility for students and co-workers to participate in international exchange and gain greater intercultural skills.

Erasmus+ is the EU programme for international collaboration and exchange. It is possible through Erasmus+ to apply for grants for activities in other countries to increase expertise, or to create new structures, teaching material, or teaching methods in collaboration with other European organisations, to help develop LiU activities.

Horizon Europe is the ninth EU framework programme for financing research and innovation. It will last for seven years: 2021-2027. LiU's Grant and Program Offices is the body within LiU that has a particular focus on the programme, and can help to answer questions.
