Erasmus+ Programme

Summary

Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2021-2027.

Erasmus+ strengthens its efforts to increase the opportunities offered to more participants and to a wider range of organisations, focusing on its qualitative impact and contributing to more inclusive and cohesive, greener and digitally fit societies.

Programme Description

The general objective of the Programme is to support under a multicultural and digital environment the educational, professional and personal development of people in education, training, youth and sport, in order to contribute sustainable growth, quality jobs, social cohesion, driving innovation, as well as to strengthen European identity. Furthermore, the Erasmus+ Programme, promotes learning mobility, active participation and cooperation, inclusion and equity, excellence, creativity, and innovation at the level of organisations and policies in the field of education and training of individuals groups, of sport staff and among young people.

The programme continues to cover all education and training sectors i.e. school education, vocational education and training, higher education, adult learning, as well youth and sport by promoting international cooperation and expansion of mobility opportunities beyond Europe, by funding exchanges and scholarships for joint degrees, by fostering capacity-building.

There are three overarching priorities under the Erasmus+ implementation in 2021:

  • Inclusion and Diversity : the inclusion and diversity will be defined to ensure equal opportunities by reaching out more and better to people with fewer opportunities, people of different ages and from diverse cultural, social and economic backgrounds, people with disabilities, migrants and people living in remote areas.
  • Environment and fight against climate change: environment and climate action are key political priorities for the EU and thus the Programme will be a key instrument for the building of knowledge, skills and attitudes on climate change and sustainable development both within the European Union and beyond.
  • Digital Transformation: the programme will support the first strategic priority of the Digital Education Action Plan (2021 -2027), the development of a high-performing digital education ecosystem, by building capacity and critical understanding in all type of education and training institutions on how to exploit the opportunities offered by digital technologies for teaching and learning at all levels and for all sectors and to develop digital transformation plans.
  • Participation in democratic life: the Programme addresses the citizens’ limited participation in its democratic processes and their lack of knowledge about the European Union.

 

In order to achieve its objectives, the Erasmus+ Programme implements the following Actions: ·

  • Key Action 1 – Learning mobility ·
  • Key Action 2 – Cooperation among organisations and institutions ·
  • Key Action 3 – Support to policy development and cooperation ·
