The UALG ALLIANCES 2022 project, coordinated by Universidade do Algarve in the framework of the European Programme Erasmus+ – Key Action 1 International Credit Mobility, supports mobility of students and academic and administrative staff from institutions in Portugal and in Partner Countries, in both directions, IN and OUT. 

UALG has developed a roadmap called “UALG ALLIANCES 2022”, targeting to create and develop channels and tools with institutions around the world on our main pillar areas: Tourism, Sea, Cultural Heritage and Health and Wellbeing. The countries considered as a priority are from East and South Asia, North and Latin America, Portuguese-speaking Sub-Saharan Africa. 

Through the exchange of staff (teaching and training) and students, this mobility project will promote the international circulation of ideas, improve human capacities, integrate high quality programmes and globally recognized courses, thereby contributing to their internationalization for excellence and transfer expertise.

Incoming Applicants

The Erasmus+ programme aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernising Education, Training, and Youth work. The seven-year programme has a budget of €14.7 billion; a 40% increase compared to current spending levels, reflecting the EU's commitment to investing in these areas.

Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad.

Erasmus+ will support transnational partnerships among Education, Training, and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.

It will also support national efforts to modernise Education, Training, and Youth systems. In the field of Sport, there will be support for grassroots projects and cross-border challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.

Erasmus+ brings together seven existing EU programmes in the fields of Education, Training, and Youth; it will for the first time provide support for Sport. As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across the Education, Training, Youth, and Sport sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules.
