Erasmus+ is a European Union funding program that supports actions in the fields of education, training, youth and sport.
The program includes three key actions as well as two other actions. These are managed on the one hand at national level by the national agencies and on the other hand at European level by the EACEA. The European Commission is responsible for all Erasmus+ policies and oversees the overall implementation of the programme.
The Erasmus+ actions managed by the EACEA are the following:
→ Key action 1 – mobility of individuals for education and training purposes
→ Key action 2: Cooperation on innovation and exchange of good practices
→ Key Action 3 – Support for policy reform
→ Jean Monnet activities
The Erasmus+ aims and objectives during the 2014-2020 programming period are detailed in the Regulation establishing Erasmus+ .
