34 projects with a total funding amount of almost six million euros, were approved throughout Austria in the International Credit Mobility Call 2020 of the Erasmus+ program. All four projects submitted by the Catholic Private University Linz were successful. The KU Linz received a fund of 134,570€ for four mobility projects for the next three years.

Since 2015, the Erasmus+ program has been promoting the global mobility of students and staff, in addition to the mobility within the Erasmus program countries. Since 2019 after the awarding of an International Credit Mobility (ICM) grant (Call 2019), KU Linz students can undertake funded study and research stays at strategic partner universities in the USA (Boston College, School of Theology and Ministry) and Brazil (Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Paraná, PUCPR). Staff members of the Catholic Private University Linz have the opportunity to teach and take part in continuing education programs. Students and teachers from the partner universities are invited to come to KU Linz.

International Credit Mobility, Erasmus+ Project, Call 2020

The funding of 134,570€, awarded in 2020 under the Erasmus+ KA107 program (International University Mobility), will support three institutes of the Faculty of Philosophy and Art Studies at KU Linz, thus expanding the mobility opportunities for students and faculty at KU Linz.

The Institute of Contemporary Arts and Media will receive funding for its project with the State Academy of Fine Arts of Armenia (Armenia).

The Tbilisi State Academy is a cooperation partner of the Institute of History and Theory of Architecture, and the University of Donja Gorica (Montenegro) cooperates with the Institute of History and Theory of Art. Furthermore, a follow-up application for the partnership with Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Paraná in Curitiba, Brazil, was also approved.

Although the start of the new projects in Armenia, Georgia, Montenegro, and Brazil, will be somewhat delayed due to corona, we look forward to this international cooperation
