ERASMUS + PROGRAM

Erasmus+ is the EU’s program to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad.

 
Set to last until 2020, Erasmus+ doesn’t just have opportunities for students. Merging seven prior programmes, it has opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations.
 

INDIVIDUALS

Erasmus+ has opportunities for people of all ages, helping them develop and share knowledge and experience at institutions and organisations in different countries.

 

ORGANISATIONS

Erasmus+ has opportunities for a wide range of organisations, including universities, education and training providers, think-tanks, research organisations, and private businesses.

AIMS

The aim of Erasmus+ is 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.

Erasmus+ also aims 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.

OUTCOMES

The outcomes of Erasmus+ are available in reports and compendia of statistics, as well as through the Erasmus+ Projects Platform, which includes most of the initiatives funded by the programme, as well as a selection of good practices and success stories.

STATISTICS

Statistics on Erasmus+ are available from the statistics page.

Information on progress towards the ET2020 benchmarks is available from the Education and Training Monitor.

Progress towards the ET2020 benchmarks can also be seen through a series of interactive maps.

Similarly, information about the situation of young people in Europe can be found in the Youth Monitor.

REPORTS

The mid-term evaluation report of the Erasmus+ Programme (2014-2020) is available in 23 languages and builds on national reports submitted by the Programme countries, evaluation reports by an external independent contractor, other reviewed studies e.g. the Erasmus impact study of 2014, experience in managing the programme and over a million responses from all interested parties.

Following the completion of the Erasmus+ Programme in 2020, a final evaluation of the Programme will be conducted by the Commission.
