Erasmus+ is the EU’s program to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. This program has a budget of 14,700 million euros and, contrary to what almost everyone thinks, it is not only aimed at students. With the Erasmus program, more than 4 million Europeans will be able to take advantage of study, experience and volunteer opportunities in Europe.
WHO IS IN CHARGE OF THE ERASMUS + PROGRAM?
The European Commission is responsible for the overall management of the program. However, it receives support from national agencies, which tailor the program to national education, training and youth systems, through the national Erasmus + offices, which are advisory and information points outside the EU, in addition to other organisms.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THIS PROGRAM?
The admission criteria for the Erasmus + program vary according to the action and the country.
In this video we leave you key gaps to understand this financing instrument.
Individuals can also participate in Erasmus + funding opportunities, although most do so through organizations participating in the program. As we have already mentioned, the admission criteria for individuals and organizations depend on the country where they are based.
The Erasmus + program is eligible for the program countries and associated countries. Program countries can participate in all Erasmus + actions, while partner countries can only participate in some and under certain conditions.
