ABOUT THE “MILITARY ERASMUS” INITIATIVE

The Euro­pean ini­tia­tive for the exchange of young offi­cers inspired by Eras­mus, often referred to as “mil­i­tary Eras­mus” in the media, is an ini­tia­tive under­tak­en by the Euro­pean Union Mem­ber States aimed at devel­op­ing the exchanges between armed forces of future mil­i­tary offi­cers as well as their teach­ers and instruc­tors dur­ing their ini­tial edu­ca­tion and train­ing. Due to the fact that the ini­tia­tive is imple­ment­ed by the Mem­ber States on a pure­ly vol­un­tary basis, their auton­o­my with regard to mil­i­tary train­ing is not com­pro­mised.

The imple­men­ta­tion of the ini­tia­tive is dri­ven by the key idea that exchanges of young offi­cers dur­ing their ini­tial train­ing form the cor­ner­stones for the emer­gence, in the longer run, of the increased inter­op­er­abil­i­ty and com­mon cul­ture that are need­ed for Euro­pean secu­ri­ty and defence. An Imple­men­ta­tion Group was cre­at­ed in Feb­ru­ary 2009 as a task-ori­ent­ed con­fig­u­ra­tion of the Euro­pean Secu­ri­ty and Defence College’s Exec­u­tive Aca­d­e­m­ic Board.

Rely­ing on con­tri­bu­tions and sup­port from the Mem­ber States, their insti­tutes and the Euro­pean Secu­ri­ty and Defence Col­lege’s Sec­re­tari­at, the Imple­men­ta­tion Group very quick­ly made sub­stan­tial progress on var­i­ous aspects of the ini­tia­tive.
