The National Agency (NA) for EU Higher Education Cooperation within the DAAD has published its Erasmus+ Annual Report for 2019, which was a very successful year.

In 2019, the Erasmus+ budget has increased by 25 million EUR to over 155 million EUR compared to the previous year. With this budget rise, the EU has become the DAAD’s second largest donor after the Federal Foreign Office; for the first time.

As a result, almost all intra-European mobilities could be funded. In 2019, the DAAD awarded almost 47,000 of its approximately 150,000 scholarships within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme.

The first 17 university alliances of the “European Universities” initiative were also selected under the programme. 15 German higher education institutions are involved in 14 of the 17 alliances. Three of them are coordinators of their respective alliance.
