The European Commission is launching a new "Erasmus Mundus External Co-operation Window" open to the EUs neighbours, Russia, Central Asia and Iran, Iraq and Yemen.

The first call for proposals will take place before the end of 2006 and will allow for a total of 1300 scholarships, of which 110 will be dedicated to Iran, Iraq and Yemen. These scholarships will facilitate the mobility of undergraduate, master, doctorate and post-doctoral students between these countries and the EU, as well as exchanges of academic staff for the purposes of teaching, training and research
