European Union's programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2021-2027
The 2021-2027 programme places a strong focus on social inclusion, the green and digital transitions, and promoting young people’s participation in democratic life.
The main aim of Erasmus+ is to provide financial support:
It is not possible for individuals to apply for Erasmus+ personally, except for applications submitted on behalf of a group of young people active in
socio-educational leadership. For an institutional application, they must associate their organisation with the Erasmus+ project to which funding
could be allocated and for which project the organisation will receive the co-funding granted.
The Erasmus+ programme focuses on three Key Actions.
Mobility opportunities in the sectors of school education, vocational education and training, higher education, adult education and youth are priority
activities in the Erasmus+ programme.
People of any age whatever their level of training are given the opportunity to take an active part in the labour market and in society and to contribute
to social inclusion and the development of a European identity.
The people concerned are:
Trainee teachers and social education workers can carry out their placement in another country.
Experts may also be invited by organisations active in the education and training sectors for the enhanced development of the
teaching and learning methods used by these organisations.
1 - Intensive hybrid programmes combine a shorter physical mobility activity with a virtual element.
The period of physical mobility may last 5 to 30 days, and must be combined with a compulsory virtual element promoting collaborative online learning
based on discussion and teamwork. A hybrid mobility activity for study purposes should make it possible to obtain at least 3 ECTS credits.
Partnerships in favour of cooperation meet the need for innovative practices, cooperation and the pooling of experience at the European level.
They are open to all types of organisations active in the fields of education, vocational training, social and educational work and other socio-economic sectors.
There are two types of partnership, defined by their aims and the composition of the partnership:
Key Action 3 is managed directly by the European Commission.
Key Action 3 also supports Jean Monnet Actions in the field of higher education and research and Jean Monnet Networks in the higher education sector,
as well as teacher training, Learning EU initiatives, and Jean Monnet Networks in the other sectors of education and training. All these actions
promote the spread of knowledge about European Union integration topics.
