Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. The new Erasmus+ programme for 2021-2027 places a strong focus on social inclusion, the green and digital transitions, and promoting young people’s participation in democratic life. It has an estimated budget of €26.2 billion for the following seven years. This is nearly double the funding compared to its predecessor programme (2014-2020).

It supports priorities and activities set out in the European Education Area, Digital Education Action Plan and the European Skills Agenda. The programme also

• supports the European Pillar of Social Rights

• implements the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027

• develops the European dimension in sport

Erasmus+ offers mobility and cooperation opportunities in

The agreements can be signed only with the institutions holding the ECHE (Erasmus Charter for Higher Education) in the countries participating in the programme. Information on the procedure of signing the Erasmus+ inter-institutional agreements for partner institutions can be found here.
