The Erasmus+ programme is the European Commission’s new programme in favour of education, training, youth, and sport.
Erasmus+ focuses on three key areas:
individual mobility for learning purposes
cooperation and partnership in favour of innovation and the sharing of experiences
support for reforms in youth policies
