Erasmus

On 30 May, the Commission adopted its proposal for the next Erasmus programme, with a doubling of the budget to 30 billion euros for the period 2021-2027.

Building on the success of Erasmus+, the next programme will provide learning and mobility opportunities to 12 million people, in comparison to 4 million people in the current programme. Its focus on “evolution, not revolution” means that the ‘Erasmus’ programme will continue to cover schools, vocational education and training, higher education and adult learning – youth and sport, but in a more streamlined manner. Building on the mid-term evaluation and stakeholder consultations, the next programme will be substantially strengthened, extended and more inclusive. It will further promote activities which foster knowledge and awareness of the EU, opportunities in forward-looking knowledge fields e.g. climate change, robotics etc. and better outreach and inclusion of people with fewer opportunities. The international dimension of the programme will also be boosted. Investing in people, their skills, and their knowledge will help respond to global challenges, maintain social fairness and drive Europe’s competitiveness.
