It was supported by the European Commission with an Erasmus Accompanying Measures grant within the Lifelong Learning Programme for the 2009 and 2010 editions. It is a complex qualitative and quantitative study which aims at pointing out existing obstacles to student mobility and provides suggestions for improvements to facilitate student exchange in Europe.
