GREEN ERASMUS+

The aim of Green Erasmus is to raise mobility participants' awareness of environmental issues and to implement projects in an environmentally sustainable way.

Eligible means of transport to / from the receiving foreign institution are train, bus, boat or shared car.

The main part of both trips must be made by one of the above means and the participants must keep evidence of such a trip (a ticket).

The one-off contribution is EUR 50.

In the case of the "shared car" option, it must be a carpool. In this sense, a case where someone will take you to the place of mobility and return without you is not considered a carpool.

It is necessary to provide a solemn declaration with the signatures of all persons who shared the transport and proof that the journey actually took place (petrol receipt, tolls, etc.).

If you wish to claim this allowance, please fill in the attached "amendment" (without the amount) and after returning from Erasmus, please bring it together with the original Confirmation of Erasmus Period and the necessary documents to the European Office.

In the event that the total travel time, including transfers, exceeds 24 hours, a supplement to the living expenses corresponding to 1/30 of the monthly rate of the given country can be claimed as follows:

1 day: 24h to 48h on the road

2 days: 48h to 72h

3 days: 72h to 96h

4 days: more than 96 hours on the way

A maximum of 4 days can be claimed for both directions together.
