Call for Erasmus+ICM2020 EU Grant Program proposal candidates (Faculty-led student mobility program with University of Trento (UniTrento))

Mobility program with University of Trento (UniTrento)

The University of Trento (UniTrento), a NAIST partner institution, has reached out to our institution concerning participation in Erasmus+ ICM 2020, a government grant project offered by EU. Erasmus+ succeeds the Erasmus Mundus program and is an educational support funding program centered on EU member countries. Within this, the International Credit Mobility- ICM program is to support student short-term mobility and faculty and staff exchange based on academic agreements concluded between the EU and other regions' institutions. We are now calling for faculty that would be interested in this mobility project with UniTrento and wish to participate in this project.

UniTrento will be in charge of creating and submitting the application to the EU, so they are asking for universities that wish to participate in this mobility program with UniTrento to have potential faculty members fill out a survey to begin application planning. We would like those faculty members who wish to participate to fill out the survey and send it to the Division for Global Education at kokusai [at] ad.naist.jp by Dec. 10, 2019.

The details of this year's program have not been released yet, but are expected to be similar to the previous year (FY2019). Below are the FY2019 details for reference
