Dear Erasmus Partners,
At the end of December 2022, the European Commission informed Tempus Public Foundation, the Hungarian National Agency that no legal commitment could be made on the basis of Council Implementing Decision (EU) 2022/2506 with the public interest trust established under Hungarian Act IX of 2021 or with the legal entity maintained by such public interest trust. The Council’s decision mainly concerns the funding of the Erasmus and Horizon Europe programmes.
The University of Debrecen is among the 21 Hungarian higher education institutions affected by the Council’s decision.
The measures taken are temporary and will remain in force until further notice from the European Commission.
The measures do not affect the grant agreements of ongoing projects or the mobility of students, teachers and staff within the framework of such projects.
Accordingly, the decision does not affect the mobilities funded by ongoing projects at the University of Debrecen for the academic year of 2022/2023 and 2023/24.
For the 2023/2024 academic year, the University of Debrecen will continue to publish calls for applications for student mobility, internships, teaching and staff training as in previous years and pleased to welcome students and staff from Erasmus partner institutions.
We sincerely hope that the present situation will be resolved soon and our Erasmus cooperation will be mutually beneficial in the years to come.
In case of any questions feel free to contact the International Relations Office of the University of Debrecen.
Debrecen 16th January 2023
