International Credit Mobility
The newly launched initiative of the European Union to use the good practices of the Erasmus+ program between Program Countries (member countries of EU, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Turkey and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) has brought cooperation of European universities with non-EU partner institutions. The Pan-European University is part of this ambitious program – the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility – from its very beginning in 2015.
Based on its policy of internationalization and established areas of cooperation with partner institutions in the partnership regions the PEU places the main emphasis on university partnerships with partner universities in the Caucasus region and the Central Asian republics of the former Soviet Union, the region of Western Balkans, East and South-East Asia, Eastern Mediterranean and Latin American. The latter two follow the PEU´s strong involvement in the Euro-Mediterranean university partnership and the Compostela Group of Universities.
Through the mobility activities in the International Credit Mobility Program the PEU shares the values and traditions of European education with mobility participants from outside the EU, spreading the goals of international university cooperation in a broader perspective, rather than only within Europe.
So far, the International Credit Mobility Program has enabled university cooperation with partner institutions from Azerbaijan, Georgia, Ukraine, the Russian Federation, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, P.R. China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Izrael, Chile, Mexico, Brazil and the Dominican Republic.
