International mobility and European citizenship are once again at the heart of the #ErasmusDays 2020. In 2019, 3 995 events were held in 53 countries! Are you ready to do even better this year?
What is ERASMUS+?
Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad.
The aim of Erasmus+ is to contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion, as well as the aims of ET2020, the EU's strategic framework for education and training.
Erasmus+ also aims to promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education, and contribute to achieving the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy.
What are the projects under Erasmus + at Mahasarakham University?
1. FRIENDS : (Furthering International Relations Capacities and Intercultural Engagement to Nurture Campus Diversity and to Support Internationalisation at Home ).The project is built around the concept of Internationalisation and Home (IaH) that reframes the traditional perceptions of higher education internationalisation in the five Partner Countries involved, namely Bhutan, Cambodia, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand. The notion of IaH is based on the assumption that for various reasons the largest part of the universities’ student body will remain non-mobile and therefore deprived from access to global knowledge and skills.
The FRIENDS project aims at strengthening the internationalisation capabilities of HEIs in Bhutan, Cambodia, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand and at developing  students’ global competence through the integration of intercultural dimensions into Partner Country (PC) HEI’s formal and informal curriculum.

2. SEASAC (South-East Asian Sales Competition) : The main aim of the SEASAC project is to strengthen South-East Asian Universities’ capability to provide highly skilled B2B Sales professionals for the emerging international markets. In the project, we utilise existing European knowledge and experiences in developing a pedagogically rich concept for the cooperation of universities and companies within the sphere of sales education. Best practices from Europe will be matched with Asian sales cultures.

3. UNITED – Engineering Knowledge Transfer Units to Increase Students’ Employability and Regional Development: The UNITED partner countries Indonesia (ID), Malaysia (MY) and Thailand (TH) represent the largest automotive industries (considering the rise in number of units produced) in the Southeast Asian region and are highly important for global car production. However, little is being done to ensure technical advancement through research and development (R&D). Considering the outlook and current industry figures, more engineers are needed.

4. STEPup: Strengthening innovative social entrepreneurship practices for disruptive business setting in Thailand and Myanmar.
