Erasmus Without Paper is a project co-funded by the the European Commission aiming to bring Erasmus administration into the 21st century by going digital.
Erasmus without Paper is about:
- Replacing a paper-based workflow by a digital one. Administrative practices in Erasmus are still paper based. Erasmus Without Paper stands for a digital workflow that leaves no university behind. by facilitating exchange of data instead of 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.
A first EWP project was running 2015-2017 and a follow-up project is currently running. It will finish in late 2019.
