Welcome to ARCOIRIS

ARCOIRIS is an Erasmus Mundus Action 2 project funded by the European Commission.
The project was organized by a Partnership of some of the most prestigious universities in Europe and Argentina and was active from July 2011 to July 2015.

ARCOIRIS provided scholarships to nationals of Argentina to spend a mobility period in Europe on a wide variety of academic fields at different levels of study (Doctorate, Post-Doctorate and Staff). 
The scholarships covered subsistence allowances, travel costs, tuition/registration fees and insurance costs.

Mobilities within the programme were successfully completed. 55 Argentinian individuals from a broad range of academic areas and levels  benefited from the opportunity to broaden their perspective by studying, teaching or doing research in Europe.
