Throughout the programme period, European mobility has been the most well-known and used instrument, as almost all Norwegian higher education institutions used mobility funds to offer their students and staff opportunities for international exchange. Erasmus+ funding provides international experience, contributes to increased professional and linguistic competence, expanded contact networks, intercultural understanding and consciousness about one's own culture. Thus, it is positive that many students and staff have taken advantage of the opportunities to gain valuable experiences across national borders. The national target of 3,000 outgoing Norwegian students with Erasmus+ scholarships has been reached. Since the figures have not yet been finally reported, the implication is that the scope will be even bigger. The national target of 1,000 outgoing Norwegian employees on teaching/training placements at foreign institutions would likely have been reached, yet it seems that the Covid-19 pandemic has made a greater impact on this target group. The most popular destination countries for outgoing students and staff coincide; the figures suggest the UK, Germany, France, Denmark, the Netherlands and most recently Italy top preference lists.
