Pilot Project of a European Online Application System (EASY) for mobility among higher music education institutions


The International Relations Coordinators of AEC member institutions have been suggesting for some years that AEC could develop a common European online applications system for ERASMUS and other mobility schemes applications, in order to overcome various obstacles such as the amount of paper work.  In the framework of the European Funded project FULL SCORE, a working group of international relations experts (a subgroup of the AEC IRCs working group), supported by the IT company ASIMUT, selected he Estonian company Dreamapply to provide an IT solution which could meet the needs of such a system at European level. With the input of the working group, the company has been shaping a first version of the European Online Application System (EASY) - Please click HERE to go to EASY
