Erasmus+ Green Travel
The new Erasmus+ program generation includes aspects of sustainability, climate change and environmental protection. The program now provides financial incentives for sustainable transport to raise awareness, to increase the number of studies and internships abroad with more environmentally friendly means of transport, and to reduce the environmental footprint of the Erasmus+ program.
Green Travel Top-Up
For stays abroad from winter semester 2022/23 on, Erasmus+ "Green Travel" includes a financial incentive of 50 EUR for participants who travel sustainably and use means of transport with low-emission, such as bus, train, or carpooling for the majority of the outward and return journey.
Additional Travel Days
Participants who require extended time for travel due to the use of sustainable transportation are eligible to apply for up to 4 additional days of funding under the Individual Support for Sustainable Travel:
- Outward/return journey of less than 8 hours = 0 additional travel days
- Outward/return journey of more than 8 hours = 1 additional travel day
- Outward/return journey of more than 2 calender days = 2 additional travel days
Required Application and Documentation
In accordance with EU regulations, participants need to complete and sign the Erasmus+ "Green Travel" Declaration on Honor by hand. The signed document has to be submitted at the Department International Student Affairs before the start of the stay and before the Grant Agreement is issued! Please note that sigital signatures and copies will not be accepted.
All travel documents proving the use of means of transport with low emission for the majority of the trip must be retained for random checks of program documents.
