The Office of International Relations (OIR) is pleased to announce the 2nd
call for applications for faculty mobility grants to Portuguese
universities under the framework of the ERASMUS+ MERGING VOICES project of
the Universidade Nova de Lisboa in partnership with selected universities.

Erasmus+ is the new EU program for 2014-2020 which aims to boost skills and
employability. Through generous financial grants, Erasmus+ supports
transnational partnerships among Education, Training and Youth institutions
and organizations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education
and work in order to tackle the skills gaps in Europe (
http://ec.europa.eu/programmes/erasmus-plus/discover/index_en.htm).

The MERGING VOICES consortium (MV) is based on institutional trust, founded
on the excellent cooperation links developed among its partners during the
last years. The MV is built on a strong cooperation, connecting Portugal’s
North and South and bringing together some of the best practices that our
Country has to offer. The sharing of common ideas and priorities for
international development coined the decision to present this new
consortium.

The Portuguese Higher Education Institutions that joined to form this
consortium and which will act as hosts to the faculty participants are the
following:

1. Universiade Nova de Lisboa <http://www.unl.pt/en/>
