Erasmus + is the European Union’s program for education, training, youth and sport for the period 2020-2027. Erasmus + brings together seven EU programs in the field of education, training, youth and supports sport for the first time. The seven European funding programs together are: Lifelong Learning, Youth in Action, Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alpha, Edulink and the cooperation program with industrialized countries. With an integrated approach, Erasmus + offers more opportunities for cooperation between the education, training, youth and sports sectors.
In order to achieve its objectives as effectively as possible, Erasmus + has a more flexible structure, proposes simpler participation and funding conditions compared to previous programs and emphasizes impact and a more strategic and inclusive approach.
