What is Erasmus Information Office (EIO) ?

Launched in 2019, EIO is an initiative by the Manipal Centre for European Studies with a vision of establishing an office dedicated to disseminating information about the Erasmus + program funded by the European Union and to guide students and staff at the MAHE campus who are participating or who want to participate in this program in different capacities.


EIO aims to aid students and staff with information about the various Erasmus+ initiatives like Staff and Student Mobility (ICM), Erasmus Mundus Joint Degrees, Capacity building in the field of Higher Education, Jean Monnet activities as well as other opportunities offered by the different European Union funding schemes. It aspires to extend support and encourage scholars at MAHE to apply for these programs and also to collaborate with other Higher Education Institutions within India and around the world. EIO also plans to venture into organizing information seminars at MAHE and eventually expand its scope of work.


  • To encourage more student and staff participation from Manipal in Erasmus Programme
  • To share former experiences and provide information to potential Erasmus beneficiaries in Manipal about student/staff mobility to Europe
  • To organize information seminars about Erasmus Programme in different institutions within MAHE
  • To conduct information seminars and cultural sensitivity workshops for Manipal students and international students in Manipal

What is Erasmus +?

‘Erasmus’ stands for European Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students. It is the European Union’s funding scheme which supports activities in the field of education, training, youth and sport. The program offers many opportunities for individuals and organisations from facilitating student and staff mobility to funding research projects in the field of higher education.
