(2014-2020) The EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe.

Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Between 2014-2020 its budget of €14.7 billion provided opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain experience, and volunteer abroad.

Erasmus+ didn't just provide opportunities for students. Merging seven prior programmes, Erasmus+ offered opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations.

The aim of Erasmus+ for the 2014-2020 period was to contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion, as well as the aims of ET2020, the EU's strategic framework for education and training.

In 2014-2020, Erasmus+ also aimed to promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education, and contribute to achieving the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy.

Specific issues tackled by the programme included:

  • reducing unemployment, especially among young people;
  • promoting adult learning, especially for new skills and skills required by the labour market;
  • encouraging young people to take part in European democracy;
  • supporting innovation, cooperation and reform;
  • reducing early school leaving;
  • Promoting cooperation and mobility with the EU's partner countries.

The 2014-2020 Erasmus+ programme offered opportunities for:

  • individuals to spend a mobility or volunteering period abroad and to receive linguistic training,
  • organisations to collaborate in project partnerships in the fields of academic and vocational training, schools, adult learning and European sport events.

Erasmus+ also supported teaching, research, networking and policy debate on EU topics.

The Erasmus+ programme for 2014-2020 had a strong international dimension: it cooperated closely with partner countries, notably in the field of higher education and youth, through institutional partnerships, youth cooperation and mobility worldwide.
