Here we share interesting, innovative and sustainable projects from different universities and initiatives.
Karlstad University incentivizes their students to take the train by offering 200 € of extra Erasmus funding to those that choose to take the train instead of a flight.
University of Eastern Finland
University of Eastern Finland strongly supports the Erasmus by train initiative. It aims to be carbon-neutral by 2025 through a variety of initiatives, one of which is to promote use of Interrail when travelling to student exchange locations in Europe.
Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH)
Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (KTH) International Relations Office and Erasmus+ offer travel reimbursements of a maximum of € 190 to students who choose to take the train to the study destination in Europe. The allowance may be used to buy a one-way/return train ticket or an Interrail pass.
Utrecht University aims to be CO2 neutral by 2030 and is working towards reducing the current air travel by 50%. As a community, we can all contribute to reducing our climate impact. Therefore Utrecht University encourages students to travel to their exchange destination by bus or train! This way our students can help to reduce UU’s ecological footprint and at the same time, get the opportunity to start your exchange abroad in an adventurous way. Utrecht University offers a large number of Travel Green Grants of € 185 each for students who choose to take the train or bus to their European study destination.
