Erasmus+ is the European Union subsidy programme for education, training, youth and sport. At the root of this programme stands the belief that investing in education, training and non-formal learning is crucial to people, regardless of their age or background. Erasmus+ gives people the chance to study, train, undertake work experience and volunteer abroad with the aim of boosting skills and employability.
The Erasmus+ programme runs from 2014-2020 and provides grants for a wide range of actions and activities in the fields of education, training, youth and sport across all sectors of lifelong learning including Higher Education, Further Education, adult education, schools and youth activities. The programme started on the 1st of January 2014 and replaced a number of previous funding programmes run by the European Commission in the area of education, training, youth and sport, including the Lifelong Learning Programme (e.g. Erasmus, Comenius, Leonardo, Grundtvig and Transversal), Youth in Action and other international programmes including Jean Monnet and Erasmus Mundus.
