The EDEN project is an Erasmus Mundus mobility programme financed by the European Commission in the framework of the Erasmus Mundus programme, Action 2 – Partnerships with Third Country higher education institutions and scholarships for mobility, covering the geographical Lot 3: Israel.
The partnership between the European universities and the universities from Israel associated in the EDEN Consortium has the potential to boost and extend the cooperation links already existing between them due to significant academic, political and social factors.
Within the EDEN project, the mobility flows are distributed according to the rules imposed by the EM Guide and to the academic interests of the European and Israeli partner universities. Project objectives will be achieved through a mobility scheme which forsees 122 short-term mobilities and long-term mobilities; the mobility flows will be mainly from Lot 3 universities to EU universities (96 from Israel to EU and 26 from EU universities to Israeli universities). These mobilities are offered for undergraduate, master, doctoral and post-doctoral students, as well as for academic and administrative staff. Undergraduate mobility represents 30% of the total number, 24% of the mobilities are master, 15% doctorate, 12% post-doctorate, while staff mobility represents 19%. All the academic fields are covered in both directions, complying with the fields of interest and mobility numbers accepted and agreed upon by each partner university.
