Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to
study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad.
Erasmus+ will support transnational partnerships among
Education, Training, and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and
work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe.
It will also support national efforts to modernise
Education, Training, and Youth systems. In the field of Sport, there will be support for grassroots projects and cross-border
challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.
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.
