Erasmus Mundus Action 2 fosters institutional co-operation in the field of higher education between the European Union and non-EU countries through a mobility scheme addressing student and academic exchanges for the purpose of studying, teaching, training and research.

EDEN (Erasmus Mundus Academic Network) is a project financed through the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 programme and was approved for a period of 4 years (15 July 2012 – 14 July 2016). The consortium consists of 6 Lot 3 higher education institutions and 9 EU universities, working together under a joint coordination: Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi – coordinator and IDC Herzliya – Co-Coordinator.

The Israeli partners are among the very prestigious HEIs in the world and make an excellent coverage both of the top-level academic institutions in Israel and of types of institutions, regions and needs in the country. The EU partners are themselves prestigious EU universities and give a very good geographical and academic coverage of European diversity. All in all, many academic fields are covered at the top level in the 15 partner universities – from science and engineering to humanities and economics. The EU and the Israeli partners have a very good record of cooperation in the frame of Erasmus Mundus.

The associate partners will complement the dissemination of the project and create synergies with student and local communities in support of EDEN activities.
