Save the Date - EWP Town Hall meeting - 22 August 2022 (Erasmus Without Paper) —
We are pleased to announce the date for the first EWP+ Town Hall meeting, on the 22nd of August at 2pm CEST (GMT+1). This forum will be part of a set of actions to ensure that no end-user is left behind. See more information about the Interoperability Reinforcement Plan here.
Because feedback and end-user input are critical in the roll-out and efforts to continuously improve the Erasmus Without Paper Network, we introduce the concept of Town Hall Meetings.
Interoperability Reinforcement Plan (Welcome to the EUF Knowledge Base!) —
As the first deadlines for switching to fully digital inter-institutional agreements (IIAs) and learning agreements (LAs) are approaching, further progress is needed to put an end to the considerable difficulties experienced by many end-users. To respond to this need, a new Interoperability Reinforcement Plan (or Action Plan) sets out the full interoperability of IIAs and LAs as the highest priority for the EWP network for the coming 6 months.

The year 2022 will be crucial for the digital future of the Erasmus administration. The renewal of our inter-institutional agreements will be done in a digital fashion and Higher Education Institutions need to support online learning agreements. And while many of us are still struggling to make it work, the next digitalisation steps are already awaiting around the corner with nominations and Transcript of Records to be exchanged in a digital manner. Moreover the European Student Identifier will both facilitate data exchanges and easy authentication for students.
