Play • 17 min

Commissioner Mariya Gabriel has said that, with the new Erasmus+ programme 2022-2027, “Paper officially belongs to the past”. Indeed, higher education administrators across Europe are actively working to achieve this goal, coming together to establish the infrastructure and processes that can enable the flawless exchange of student data. 

So what exactly is going on right now to provide students and staff with an easier and more efficient experience of the administrative component of Erasmus+ mobility? In this episode of the EAIE podcast, we sit in conversation with a veteran of Erasmus+ digitalisation, Nikos Liolios of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Join us as we hear from him what novelties we can expect in the future, what challenges are yet to be overcome, and how to avoid feeling lost in this new world of digital bureaucracy.
