What is Erasmus+?


ACE English Malta PIC Number: 948769417

Erasmus+ is the new EU programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport for 2014-2020. Erasmus+ brings together seven existing EU programmes in the fields of Education, Training, and Youth (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius, Grundtvig, the Youth in Action programme, Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Edulink); 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.

This new programme 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.

Erasmus+ encourages individual mobility, transnational partnerships and alliances to foster cooperation between organisations and institutions and to stimulate knowledge and innovation in the field of education, training and youth.
