In the 2014-2020 there was a start of the new EU programme for education, training, youth and sport called "Erasmus+". "Erasmus+" will cover the period 2014-2020 and replaces seven existing programmes, including the Lifelong Learning programme (LLP). The basis to be able to start successful Erasmus mobility activities (required for student mobility for studies and staff mobility for teaching) is the prior signing of inter-institutional agreements between institutions which are holders of the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education.
The Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) provides the general quality framework for European and international cooperation activities a higher education institution (HEI) may carry out within the Programme. The award of an Erasmus Charter for Higher Education is a pre-requisite for all HEIs located in an eligible country and willing to participate in learning mobility of individuals and/or cooperation for innovation and good practices under the Programme. For HEIs located in other countries, the ECHE is not required, and the quality framework will be established through inter-institutional agreements between HEIs. The Charter is awarded for the full duration of the Programme.
In December 2013 European Commission awarded the University of Zagreb with the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education for the whole period of the Erasmus+ programme.
