ERASMUS+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020
The Erasmus+ Programme builds on the achievements of more than 25 years of European programmes in the fields of education, training and youth, covering both an intra-European as well as an international cooperation dimension.
Erasmus+ is the result of the integration of the following European programmes implemented by the Commission during the period 2007-2013:
Education, training, youth and sport can make a major contribution to help tackle socio-economic changes, the key challenges that Europe will be facing until the end of thedecade and to support the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion.
The Erasmus+ Programme is designed to support Programme Countries' efforts to efficiently use the potential of Europe’s human talent and social capital, while confirming the principle of lifelong learning by linking support to formal, non-formal and informal learning throughout the education, training and youth fields. The Programme also enhances the opportunities for cooperation and mobility with Partner Countries, notably in the fields of higher education and youth.
In order to achieve its objectives, the Erasmus+ Programme implements the following Actions:
ACTION 1– Mobility of individuals
ACTION 2– Cooperation for innovation and the exchange od good practices
ACTION 3– Support for policy reform.
Actions of the KA1 and KA2 are managed at decentralised level by the National Agencies; actions of the KA3 are managed at central level by The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) in Brussels.
