CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Programme for University Studies) is based on the international Agreement signed by the member states and open for accession. The first agreement was signed in Budapest on December 8, 1993. Croatia joined the programme at the first conference of the Joint Committee of Ministers in Vienna, on January 22, 1995. Current member countries are: Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, the Slovak Republic and Slovenia. Prishtina/Kosovo is also participating.
Central CEEPUS Office is situated in Vienna and coordinates the national CEEPUS offices. The central office is financed by Austria; the costs of national offices as well as programme expenditures are covered by the member states. The programme expenditures are based on the allocated quotas and may include accommodation costs, daily allowance, grants, etc. for students and professors (covered by the incoming member state body) as well as travel costs (covered by the outgoing member state body).
The current CEEPUS III agreement is effective as of May 1, 2011. The duration is seven years.
