The IPSantarém, was, once again, attributed the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) for the new term of the Erasmus+ Program 2021-2027! 

Our institution agrees to comply with all the principles and obligations, ensuring that the activities of European and international cooperation contribute to compliance with the institutional strategy of the IPSantarém. 

Attribution of an ECHE is a pre-requisite for all higher education institutions of a country that is in the programme and that intend to participate in individual mobility for learning and / or cooperation for innovation and good practices in the ambit of Erasmus+.

Erasmus Policy Statement 2021-27  

Subsequently to the ECHE approval, the IPSantarém published the Erasmus Policy Statement for the duration of the 2021-27 Erasmus+ Program, elaborated according to the principles of the Erasmus Charter for this period. 

Principles of the ECHE (2021-27): 

  • Respect in full the principles of non-discrimination, transparency and inclusion set out in the Programme. 
  • Ensure equal and equitable access and opportunities to current and prospective participants from all backgrounds, paying particular attention to the inclusion of those with fewer opportunities. 
  • Ensure full automatic recognition of all credits (based on the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System – ECTS) gained for learning outcomes satisfactorily achieved during a period of study/training abroad, including during blended mobility. 
  • Charge no fees, in the case of credit mobility, to incoming mobile students for tuition, registration, examinations or access to laboratory and library facilities. 
  • Ensure the quality of the mobility activities and of the cooperation projects throughout the application and implementation phases. 
  • Implement the priorities of the Programme:  
  • By undertaking the necessary steps to implement digital mobility management in line with the technical standards of the European Student Card Initiative. 
  • By promoting environmentally friendly practices in all activities related to the Programme. 
  • By encouraging the participation of individuals with fewer opportunities in the Programme. 
  • By promoting civic engagement and encouraging students and staff to get involved as active citizens before, during and after their participation in a mobility or project. 


Students’ rights abroad: 



The Erasmus Program has been in existence for 30 years. Under its current designation, Erasmus+, it is the program of the European Union in the domain of education, training, youth, and sport. 

It was approved by the European Parliament on 19 November, 2013 and had a duration of 7 years – from 2014 to 2020.  

It is divided into Key-Actions:  

  1. Key Action 1 KA1 (mobility of individuals for learning) 
  1. Key Action 2 KA2 (Cooperation for Innovation and Exchanges of Good Practices) 
  1. Key Action 3 KA3 (Support of the Revision of Policies) 

Every year, on a determined date, the IPSantarém applies for KA1 and looks forward to receiving funding to implement the Action. 

The general objectives of the Program are: 


  1. Increase the competency and employability of students and contribute to competitiveness of the European economy. 
  1. Improve the quality of Teaching and Learning. 
  1. Implement a strategy of internationalization in Higher Education among the countries in the Programme and increase the capacitation of the partner countries (outside of Europe). 

In the IPSantarém, the Programme operates within the partnership of Parceria ErasmusCentro (Consortium of 8 polytechnics which apply together to Action 1- KA1).
