Erasmus + Green Travel

Green Travel:

Students can receive additional funding (top-up) for Green Travel if they use a low-emission mode of transportation (bus, train, or carpooling with 3 or more people).

Top-up:

Student Mobility (SMS) or Student Mobility –Traineeship (SMP):

  • one-time €50
  • funding of up to 4 additional (travel) days

What do I need to do?

Please already indicate in your application which means of transport you plan to use for the main part of your journey (> 60 %) to the destination university. If your application and nomination are successful, you will receive an online form from the International office Göttingen in June, which you must fill out and send by 15 June. You will then be pre-registered for the additional funding (top-up) "Green Travel". Please keep supporting documents such as tickets, as you will need to submit them when requested.
