The ErasmusDays initiative goes back to the French National Agency, which called for it in the Erasmus + anniversary year 2017. Since then, the campaign has enjoyed great popularity. Last year almost 4,000 events were held in 53 countries - 131 of them in Germany.

JMC ErasmusDays

This year, #ErasmusDays 2020 will mostly consist of online events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This October, you will have the opportunity to engage with others and be part of an interactive and dynamic series of events run by different organisations and universities.

Video contest gives students a voice in expressing their opinion about people-to-people connectivity and the opportunity to take active part in 2021 ErasmusDays.
The Department of International Political Economy of East Asia (IPEA) launches a video contest focused on the theme “Erasmus+: Connecting People”. The winner or winners of the contest will engage with and contribute to the 2021 ErasmusDays by implementing their activity; the videos will also be circulated on social media channels and feature in the Erasmus+ activities portal from the European Commission.
Your video will present a creative activity/event to be conducted during the 2021Erasmus Days. The activity must address your ideas on ‘Erasmus+: Connecting People’ in 60 seconds or less. Activities could e.g. include workshops, podcasts, live events (performances of all kinds), sport events, flash mobs, online polls… and much more!
