The Erasmus+ Programme builds on the achievements of more than 25 years of European programmes in the fields of education, training and youth, covering both an intra -European as well as an international cooperation dimension. Erasmus+ is the result of the integration of the following European programmes implemented by the Commission during the period 2007-2013: The Lifelong Learning Programme (The Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius, Grundtvig), The Youth in Action Programme, The Erasmus Mundus, Programme Tempus, Alfa, Edulink Programmes of cooperation with industrialised countries in the field of higher education.
Erasmus+ aims at going beyond these programmes, by promoting synergies and cross-fertilisation throughout the different fields of education, training and youth, removing artificial boundaries between the various Actions and project formats, fostering new ideas, attracting new actors from the world of work and civil society and stimulating new forms of cooperation. Erasmus+ should become a more effective tool to address real needs in terms of the development of human and social capital in Europe and beyond.

The Government of the Slovak Republic approved the establishment of the National Scholarship Programme of the Slovak Republic for the support of mobility of students, PhD students, university teachers, researchers and artists in 2005. The National Scholarship Programme of the Slovak Republic is funded by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic.
The scholarships are intended for students and graduates of Slovak universities (even if the doctoral study is carried out at an external educational institution in accordance with the law on universities, e.g. on SAS) to cover the living costs of a study stay during the 2nd degree of higher education (master/ engineering / doctoral study), eventually study or research stay during a doctoral study at a selected foreign universityor research workplace. The National Scholarship Programme of the Slovak Republic supports study/research/teaching/artistic mobility of international students, PhD students, university teachers, researchers and artists at higher education institutions and research organisations.
