Call for NEW Institutions

is now closed and will open again in Autumn

The AEC Project aimed at creating a European Online Application System (EASY) for mobility among higher music education institutions is now entering its fourth year of operation. During the current academic year  105 institutions joined the system exchanging about 5.000 applications with institutions within and outside the system. In its fifth year EASY is aiming at expanding to more AEC members and also to art academies willing to use this tool for exchanges in dance, theatre, fine arts, design and architecture. An important focus will be placed on the integration with the Erasmus Without Paper ecosystem.
AEC member institutions interested in joining the project are asked to pay a contribution in order to cover the ‘service fee’, which is related to the actual use of the system.
