Welcome to ARCADE

ARCADE is an Erasmus Mundus Action 2 project funded by the European Commission and organized by a Partnership of some of the most prestigious universities in Europe and Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan). The project was  and was active from July 2011 to July 2015.

ARCADE provided scholarships to nationals of the Central Asian countries mentioned to spend a mobility period in Europe on a wide variety of academic fields at different levels of study (Undergraduate, Master, 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. 91 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.
