The new Erasmus + 2021-2027 has been launched by the European Commission and the 2021 call for proposals is already available. The Call is open to all public or private bodies active in the fields of education, training, youth and of sport.
The new budget is 26.2 billion euros (it was 14.7 in the 2014-2020 period), to which will be added approximately 2.2 billion euros from the EU’s external instruments. This is nearly double the funding compared to its predecessor programme (2014-2020).
70% of the budget will finance learning mobility projects in Europe and beyond, while 30% will be allocated to transnational cooperation projects.
“The fact that the Erasmus + budget for the next 7 years has almost doubled demonstrates the importance attached to education, lifelong learning and young people in Europe. Thanks to Erasmus + we will create the European Education Area”, Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, declared.
The new Erasmus + programme offers opportunities for study periods abroad, internships, apprenticeships and staff exchanges in all areas of education, training, youth and sport. It is open to school pupils and students of higher education and vocational education and training, adult learners, young people participating in an exchange, youth workers and sports coaches.
Erasmus + 2021-2027 aims to be even more inclusive and to support green and digital transitions, investing in awareness-raising projects on environmental issues and in projects for the development of high-quality digital skills, through the eTwinning platform, School Education Gateway and the European Portal for young people.
DiscoverEU now becomes an integral part of Erasmus + and offers 18-year-olds the chance to get a train ticket to travel across Europe, learn about other cultures and meet young Europeans.
