Erasmus Without Paper was a combination of 2 Erasmus+ projects co-funded by the the European Commission from 2015 till the end of 2019. Above all, it is about a dream coming true. Erasmus Without Paper is bringing Erasmus administration into the 21st century by going digital. For the most recent information on the overall initiative and how to make it happen, visit the EWP Competence Centre
The Erasmus without Paper initiative is about:
- Replacing a paper-based workflow by a digital one. Administrative practices in Erasmus are still largely paper based. Erasmus Without Paper stands for a digital workflow that leaves no university behind by facilitating the exchange of data instead of written (also PDF) documents. EWP is an inclusive network and leaves no university behind.
- Tackling the administrative workload for students and staff. Both mobile students and staff supporting student exchanges need to process a lot of documents and procedures that leads to a huge workload. The workload can be heavily reduced by embracing technology.
- Creating free public infrastructure. Erasmus Without Paper is creating public infrastructure that facilitates a digital administrative workflow. It goes without saying that this infrastructure will be freely available for end users.
- Streamlining technical solutions for student mobility. Instead of reinventing the wheel, Erasmus Without Paper aims to streamline existing technical solutions by bringing tools together and connecting them through a network.
