Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2021-2027.
Education, training, youth and sport are key areas that support citizens in their personal and professional development. High quality, inclusive education and training, as well as informal and non-formal learning, ultimately equip young people and participants of all ages with the qualifications and skills needed for their meaningful participation in democratic society, intercultural understanding and successful transition in the labour market.
Building on the success of the programme in the period 2014-2020, 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. The 2021-2027 programme supports priorities and activities set out in the European Education Area, Digital Education Action Plan and the European Skills Agenda.
The Programme is made up of three so-called “Key Actions” (mobility of individuals, cooperation among organisations and institutions, and support to policy development and cooperation) and Jean Monnet actions. They are managed partly at the national level by National Agencies and partly at the European level by the Education, Audiovisual and Cultural Executive Agency (EACEA).
