Description of the project



Erasmus+ is the EU program in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. Erasmus + has a budget of EUR 14.7 billion over 7 years, reflecting the commitment to invest in these areas, above all in terms of skills development and the employability of young people. Erasmus+ provides opportunities for more than 4 million Europeans to study, train and gain work experience and perform volunteer work abroad, supporting cooperation and the development of partnerships between European institutions and other parts of the world.


JAMIES - International Credit Mobility

The International Credit Mobility (ICM) is part of Key Action 1 of the Erasmus + Program and allows a Higher Education Institution (HEI) in a partner country to send students, teaching and non-teaching staff to perform a study period, a teaching or training mission to an HEI in a Program country and vice versa.

JAMIES is the result of a partnership between Universidade do Minho (Coordinator), Universidade do Algarve, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Universidade do Porto and Universidade de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, under ICM 2017, and allows the 5 Higher Portuguese Institutions to receive/send students, teaching and non-teaching staff from/to 5 partner countries outside Europe - Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria and Tunisia.



JAMIES has a total of 81 scholarships/grants:

  • 21 scholarships for students;
  • 34 grants for teaching staff;
  • 26 grants for non-teaching staff.

Please check the "JAMIES Application Guide - 3rd Call" to find out about the available scholarships/grants within the third call.
