SWISS INTERIM SOLUTION FOR ERASMUS+ 2016
In February 2014, negotiations on Swiss participation in the European education programme ‘Erasmus+’ were suspended and Switzerland was demoted to the status of a third country (‘partner country’). Switzerland still has this status in the Erasmus+ Call for proposals 2016.
As a result, Swiss institutions can only participate in a reduced number of activities within Erasmus+ as described in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide. Switzerland is therefore again participating only indirectly, via an interim solution for Erasmus+ 2016 supported by Swiss funding. The ch Foundation has been mandated to implement this interim solution.
