Center for Information and Recognition of Qualifications in Higher Education has been informed by the Ministry of Civil Affairs that there is not a need for signing a new agreement for the participation of Bosnia and Herzegovina in the EU's Erasmus + program
Furthermore, a new name for "partner countries", what was the status of Bosnia and Herzegovina in a previous period, has been changed and for the period 2021-2027, the name is "unaffiliated third countries".
Although for the participation in Erasmus + 2014-2020, besides a signing of the agreement, an entry card was necessary to be paid, in a new program cycle this entry card does not exist.
Thus, Bosnia and Herzegovina should not sign the agreement either pays the entry card for the participation in the Program and will continue using par of the Program for the Western Balkans.
Call for Proposals 2020 will be announced this autumn, and the European Commission will inform all stakeholders on exact dates, requirements, and deadlines for applications.
