The Erasmus+ programme is the successor of the LifeLongLearning Programme European. The seven year programme (2014-2020) has a budget of €14.7 billion and aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernising Education, Training, and Youth work.
Erasmus+ supports transnational partnerships among Education, Training, and Youth institutions and aims to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.
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.
Information about the different funding schemes and calls for proposals can be found on the Erasmus+ website
