Erasmus+ is the EU’s program to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. This program has a budget of 24,570 million euros and contrary to what many people think, it is not only aimed at students. With the Erasmus+ programme, more than 12 million Europeans will be able to take advantage of study, experience and volunteer opportunities in Europe.
WHO IS IN CHARGE OF THE ERASMUS + PROGRAMME?
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 PROGRAMME?
The admission criteria for the Erasmus + vary according to the action and the country.
Individuals can also participate in Erasmus + funding opportunities, although most do so through organisations participating in the programme. As we have already mentioned, the admission criteria for individuals and organisations depend on the country where they are based.
Erasmus + is eligible for the program countries and associated countries. Programme countries can participate in all Erasmus + actions, while partner countries can only participate in some and under certain conditions.
