Erasmus+, it all starts here! The new Erasmus + 2021 | 2027 Programme

Open to any public or private body active in the fields of education, training, youth and sport based in all EU Member States and third countries associated to the programme, the Erasmus+ will support and fund the most relevant projects.

The new Erasmus+ programme provides opportunities for study periods abroad, traineeships, apprenticeships, and staff exchanges in all fields of education, training, youth and sport. It is open to school pupils, higher education and vocational education and training students, adult learners, youth exchanges, youth workers and sport coaches.

In addition to mobility the new Erasmus+ also invests in cross‑border cooperation projects. These can be between higher education institutions (e.g. the European Universities initiative); schools; teacher education and training colleges (e.g. Erasmus+ Teacher Academies); adult learning centres; youth and sport organisations; providers of vocational education and training (e.g. Vocational Centres of Excellence); and other actors in the learning sphere.

The Erasmus+ resilience effort in the context of the pandemic will mobilise hundreds of thousands of schools, higher education institutions, vocational training institutes, teachers, young people, youth and sport organisations, civil society and other stakeholders. The programme will help accelerate new practices that improve the quality and relevance of education, training and youth systems across Europe, at national, regional and local level.

The adoption of the Erasmus+ Programme Guide is the first step to the beginning of this new journey supported by the launch of  the first calls for proposals under the new Erasmus+.

In Portugal, in a completely online format, the National Erasmus+ Agencies, Education and Training and Youth in Action will hold the national launch event for the Erasmus + Programs and the European Solidarity Corps on the 14th of April with the presence of the Nacional Authorities responsible for the management of the Programme in Portugal.

Update:

August 23: After approval at the Meeting of the Council of Ministers, Council of Ministers resolution No. 115/2021 was published today, extending the mandate of the National Agency for the Management of the Erasmus+ Education and Training Program. See all information here.
