The Unit has two sub-units: Outreach, including Country Representatives, and Capacity Building, including Projects and Networks.

Outreach Sub-Unit

The Outreach sub-unit is in charge of the EMA’s Country Representatives (CRs) and strengthening EMAs presence across the world, building an international network of students and alumni, spreading Erasmus Mundus information and promoting Erasmus Mundus joint programmes across the globe.

Country Representatives

EMAs Country Representatives (CRs) serve as the main point of contact between EMA and Erasmus Mundus prospects, alumni and students coming from the country they represent. The CR network (CRNet) is an international team of motivated and proactive volunteers passionate about spreading the word about EMA across the globe. In this way, they aim to support prospective students and connect students and alumni during and after their Erasmus Mundus experience.


The current director of the Country Representative Network is Aliro Villacorta and can be reached at crnet@em-a.eu

The Capacity Building & Professional Development subunit is in charge of creating training opportunities for the professional development of EMA members so that they can have a local or global impact after their Erasmus Mundus experience.
