Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad. Erasmus+ has opportunities for people of all ages, helping them develop and share knowledge and experience at institutions and organisations in different countries.

The Intra-Africa Academic Mobility Scheme supports higher education cooperation between countries in Africa. The scheme aims to promote sustainable development and ultimately contribute to poverty reduction by increasing the availability of trained and qualified high-level professional manpower in Africa.

The program's objective is to improve the skills and competencies of students and staff through enhanced mobility between African countries. Strengthening cooperation between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Africa will increase access to quality education and will encourage and enable African students to undertake postgraduate studies in the African continent.

Africa-Europe: from COVID-19 to Recovery

Europe is living in a temporary depression that seems to come to an end in the following months.

On the other hand, Africa has managed its own COVID-19 crisis with less damages than Europe and the Americas, but once the pandemic is over and those continents make a re-start, where's Africa's starting point with respect to its European partners?

It's still a migration-problem-only view for Europeans or will Africa be able to seek further partnerships? 

Will Africa's voice be heard in the recovery budgets of the European Union? 

Borders will re-open, but will Africa and Europe rely again on walls, razor-wire fences, and such?
