Welcome to the
Erasmus Without Paper (EWP)
Erasmus without Paper is a project and now a Network funded through Erasmus+ KA3 from 1/11/ 2015 till 30/10/2017 and again from 1/1/2018 till 31/12/19. Its chief goal is to digitalise the administrative framework that underpins student mobility in Europe, enabling electronic data exchange and interoperability among diverse information systems. In March 2019 the European Commission announced that the usage of EWP will be made mandatory from 2021 as part of the next Multi-annual financial framework (MFF) i.e. the next Erasmus programme. This was confirmed and elaborated in the Erasmus goes digital webinar on 5/3/2020.
EWP consists of two chief components: a network that interconnects a multitude of student information systems (whether individual universities or third-party providers which represent multiple institutions) through the use of APIs and a Dashboard that provides a web solution for exchanging student data electronically for HEIs lacking the required SIS software. The present document focuses exclusively on the EWP network and the connection to it; the compliance and use of the dashboard is the object of a different set of documents.
We have compiled useful resources, tutorial videos, presentations and other tools and material to support the transition to digital Erasmus and the management of student mobilities from 2021 onwards.
