The money will be used for Erasmus+, which allows for opportunities for students to discover other parts of the world while studying at a partner university. Also part of Erasmus+ are traineeships at companies or other types of organisations within the EU, an option that is increasing in popularity.
University staff can also benefit from Erasmus+, since they too can sign up for a period abroad in what is termed "personalmobilitet". When it comes to personalmobilitet, Dalarna University positioned second in the highest number after Lund University for the period 2017-2018.
