Erasmus +



Université Savoie Mont Blanc holds the Erasmus+ Charter for higher education.

For more information on USMB Erasmus policy.

Erasmus+ promotes the European and international mobility of students and staff through mobility programs designed to enhance their skills and employability.

ERASMUS+ Blended Intensive Programme (BIP)

The Blended Intensive Programme (BIP) is a program that combines :

  • online learning activities (between transnational and transdisciplinary teams of students)
  • a 5-day period of physical mobility.

It uses innovative teaching and learning methods.

A BIP can be organized around challenges, and offers added value compared with existing conventional programs.

Participating in an Erasmus+ intensive program offers students the opportunity to :

  • Develop/reinforce your knowledge of the academics theme,
  • Acquire skills and know-how by working in multicultural teams and experiencing international mobility.
  • Improve their language skills, particularly in Romance languages and English.

In addition, the academics program and the mobility period enable participants to develop intercultural skills by immersing themselves in international academic and professional environments.

Students receive an Erasmus+ grant on the basis of lump-sum payments:

  • 79 per day for a stay of 5 to 14 days to cover transportation and living expenses.
  • 56€ per additional day for any period exceeding 14 days and up to 30 days.
  • Possibility of receiving a financial supplement and/or a travel package for students with fewer opportunities and for those using more environmentally-friendly modes of transport: green mobility top-up and inclusion top-up.

Students who take part in an intensive program and meet the criteria required to validate the program will receive ECTS credits for both the online academic part and the mobility period.

These credits are considered optional if they are not included in the student's academics syllabus.

ERASMUS+ International Mobility Credits

International Credit Mobility (ICM) is a mobility project between Erasmus+ countries (European Union member states and associated third countries) and partner countries.

Program priorities:

  • Inclusion, with a particular focus on audiences with fewer opportunities (students and staff with disabilities; learners from low socio-economic backgrounds, people facing geographical obstacles, etc.). Additional funding and new mobility formats are planned to encourage the participation of these audiences in the Erasmus+ 2021-2027 program.
  • Ecological transition: additional funding (sustainable travel package) is provided to encourage the use of transport that emits less greenhouse gas. Applicants are also encouraged to include a sustainable development education dimension in their project.


  • SMS Student Mobility for Studies: from the 1st year of higher education, for a duration of 2 to 12 months. These mobilities can take place in a hybrid format, combining virtual or remote activities AND physical mobility, which can be of short duration (5 to 30 days).
  • SMP Student Mobility for Placement: from the 1st year of study, for a period of 2 to 12 months.
  • Combined mobility: internship integrated into the study period.

INCOMING STAFF FROM PARTNER UNIVERSITIES AND OUTGOING STAFF FROM USMB (teaching staff, permanent or contract administrative staff):

  • Staff mobility for Teaching Assignment (STA): lasting from 5 days to 2 months, excluding travel, with a minimum of 8 hours of teaching per week to or from participating countries.
  • academics(STT: Staff Trainingmobility ): lasting from 5 days to 2 months, excluding travel, for a period of internship or observation in a higher education institution or other relevant organization. Eligible activities include structured courses and targeted language training.
  • Combined mobility: possibility of combining a teaching activity(minimum 4 hours of teaching) and a academics activity over the same period.


Doctoral students:
Doctoral students with a teaching contract can go on teaching assignments or academics. As students, doctoral students can take part in study visits, which can take the form of a hybrid (distance learning + face-to-face) program. In contrast to other students, they can take part in short physical mobility programs of between 5 and 30 days, without having to combine it with virtual or distance learning activities.

Please note: conferences are not eligible.

*Associate partner UNITA

USMB responded to the MIC project's first call for applications in 2015. Since then, each application has been aimed at strengthening special relationships with a limited number of universities. Since 2015, USMB has managed a total MIC budget of €863,000 and organized 225 mobilities, most of them incoming.

The university relies on MIC to strengthen its links with partners outside the EU, facilitating staff mobility in both directions, as well as IN student mobility. OUT student mobility is financed by regional grants.

The objectives of these mobility schemes are clear: staff mobility enables teams to come into contact with each other for training purposes, to strengthen mutual knowledge, exchange best practices, develop new projects and facilitate the management of partnerships and associated mobility; student mobility enables the internationalization of the career paths of students from partner universities, as well as the internationalization of our own students "at home". In turn, they help us to attract talent and raise our profile on the international scene.

The USMB is part of an international approach with exemplary performances in terms of student mobility. Every year since 2008, the USMB has been well ahead of the pack in the Erasmus rankings for outgoing student mobility.

It is now seeking to focus its strategy by strengthening privileged relationships with a limited number of universities.

This approach should enable us toincrease the number of students admitted each year (in order to rebalance IN & OUT flows) as well as develop scientific collaborations.

The USMB's internationalization strategy focuses on 3 main areas:
1) Development of cross-border relations,
2.the French-speaking world
3. integration into networks.

The development of relations with Morocco, Burkina Faso, Senegal and Canada (Quebec) is directly linked to axes 2 and 3. It also reflects the region's commitment to the French-speaking world, which has been a guiding principle of its IR strategy since joining the Chaires Senghor network in 2013. The French-speaking world is also one of the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region's development priorities.

In addition, since 2018, USMB has formalized the constitution of the RELIEF network (Réseau d'Échanges et de Liaison entre Institutions d'Enseignement supérieur Francophones), which it founded with UQTR in Quebec and HES-SO in Switzerland. Burkina Faso and Senegal are involved in RELIEF's work on renewable energies and sustainable development. This organization responds to the need to reach out to African audiences, who often have difficulty obtaining visas for Europe or America.

Finally, as part of the construction of our European alliance "UNITA universitas montium", which brings together 6 EU universities, UNITA members have selected some 30 of their best partners outside the EU with whom they wish to strengthen their collaboration. These 30 universities, spread across all continents, are now part of the GEMINAE network.

The 2022 agreement with Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico) is at the heart of the construction of our European university "UNITA Universitas Montium" and its network of partners outside Europe "GEMINAE".
Since the end of 2020, the USMB has been a member ofUNITA, an alliance of 6 universities including those of Turin (Italy), Zaragoza (Spain), Beira Interior (Portugal), Ouest-Timisoara (Romania) and Pau (France). As one of only 5% of European universities to belong to such an alliance, the USMB stands out and demonstrates its ability to unite university partners around a single structuring project. The UNITA partners share common characteristics that naturally led them to join forces: they are located in Romance language countries, in mountainous, rural and cross-border areas, and they wish to place students at the heart of their project, while encouraging the development of innovative teaching practices. Mobility for all is another of the Alliance's key objectives, which is reflected in the ever-increasing number of new forms of mobility.
UNITA is keen to share its best practices and disseminate its model of cooperation with universities worldwide. To this end, UNITA members have selected university partners in Romance-language countries outside Europe with whom they have excellent partnership relations and wish to develop and strengthen their collaboration. These 30 universities, spread across all continents (50% of which are in Latin America), are now part of the GEMINAE network. In addition to sharing best practices, this network aims to invite GEMINAE partners to take part in various activities carried out by the alliance. In addition, UNITA wishes to share with the universities in the GEMINAE network a common approach to multilingualism, based on the tool of intercomprehension in Romance languages, a method which enables speakers of the same language family to work together without recourse to a third language.

USMB's international strategy is increasingly focused on regional rather than bilateral projects. This is the case in Southeast Asia (SEA ), where the USMB intends to work jointly with Laos, Indonesia and Malaysia to strengthen academics future French-speaking tourism professionals. This project is supported locally by the Cooperation and Cultural Action Departments of the French Embassies in the 3 countries concerned, which have identified the academics tourism professions as a common need. The USMB is also planning to join the "network of excellence in tourism training" set up under the French government's economic stimulus plan.

Any university wishing to make its contribution to these major challenges within the European edifice must develop solid basic and applied sciences, and attract the most motivated students in this respect. In this context, the two main reasons supporting and stimulating the development of cooperation with Ukraine are, firstly, Ukraine's geopolitical rapprochement with the European Union and, secondly, the fact that Ukraine is a country with a developed science and higher education system stemming from the Soviet period as mentioned above, which nevertheless needs urgent modernization and radical organizational reforms.

The funding for these mobilities is provided in the form of European lump sums.

The MIC grant corresponds to a travel package + individual support (5 days minimum + 2 days travel).

The Erasmus+ agency authorizes stays from 5 days to 2 months (excluding travel time). The funding granted by the USMB for the stay part of the mobility of incoming and outgoing staff is a package of 5 days on site (Monday to Friday) + 2 days travel compensation.

Only the outward journey is taken into account in the distance calculation, but the corresponding rate covers the cost of the return trip.

Kilometric scale for travel packages:

Between 100 and 499 km 180€ per participant
Between 500 and 1999 km 275€ per participant
Between 2000 and 2999 km
360€ per participant
Between 3000 and 3999 km 530€ per participant

The aim of this intervention was to initiate the introduction of audiovisual teaching at the University of Dakar, in particular through a concrete learning situation and the production of an audiovisual project.ealisation of an audiovisual project.





  • Serge Hélies mobility academics in May 2022:

Testimonial: "Following the workshop held with ESP teams and students at UCAD in November 2021, we worked on and submitted a European capacity-building application entitled XAM XAMALÉ. It is scheduled to run for 3 years and includes the University of Turin (a UNITA member), the CESTI of the University of Dakar, UCAD (UNITA's GEMINAE partner) and the ISEP in Thies.

My trip in May consisted in meeting the various partners in person, and carrying out a check-up of the premises and equipment of the two establishments in Senegal likely to host a work-study audiovisual vocational bachelor's degree.

A positive outcome for this field mission, which, after working remotely, enables us to envisage the eventual positive return of the dossier with a much more concrete overview of the situation and resource persons".


  • Teaching mobility from March 7 to 11, 2022 for Pascale BALLAND, university professor and researcher at the SYMME Laboratory, specializing in mechanics and materials.

The aim of the project is to make "experimental machines or devices" accessible to students by means of online practical work as well as in real-life situations, with the help of interactive videos, validation MCQs and summary sheets.

This system will be deployed in Senegal and France on the Moodle platform, either as a complement to existing practical work, for validation before a session or for free access.

The initial aim is to validate the concept and determine the relevance of such a product. At least 3 sequences will be offered at the start of the 2023-2024 academic year, focusing on the mechanical characterization of materials, for 150 students per country. Two students from each country will be involved in setting up the content during an end-of-year internship, with both technical and pedagogical supervision.
