Erasmus+ Programme

ERASMUS + PROGRAMME

Objectives

The Erasmus+ Programme is a European Union education and training programme which aims to enhance the quality of higher education in  Europe and strengthen the European dimension. It is also aiming to increase skills and employability, training and youth work,  besides modernising higher education in Europe. For these purposes.  the Programme promotes cooperation among higher education institutions in Europe. These partnerships and mobility activities are financially supported by the Programme.

As well as cooperation between higher education institutions, the Erasmus+ Programme promotes cooperation between higher education institutions and labour markets so that universities meet the needs of labour market and graduates have better opportunities for  employment.

The European Commission is responsible for the overall implementation of  the Erasmus Programme. Actions are managed by national agencies in the 33 participating countries or by Executive Agency for Education, Audovisiual and Culture (EAEAC) based in Brussels.

Erasmus+ will support transnational partnerships among Education, Training, and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.

It will also support national efforts to modernise Education, Training, and Youth systems. In the field of Sport, there will be support for grassroots projects and cross-border challenges   such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.

Erasmus+ brings together seven existing EU programmes in the fields of Education, Training, and Youth; it will for the first time provide support for Sport. As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across the Education, Training, Youth, and Sport sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules.
