The new EU programme 2014/2020 for Education, Training, Youth and Sports.
The new EU programme Erasmus+ aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernising Education, Training, and Youth work. The seven year programme will have a budget of 14.7 billion euros; a 40% increase compared to current spending levels, reflecting the EU's commitment to investing in these areas.
Erasmus+ brings together seven existing EU programmes in the fields of Education, Training, and Youth; it will for the first time provide support for Sport. As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across the Education, Training, Youth, and Sport sectors and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules.
Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad.
Detailed information regarding all actions, including the calls to submit applications, will be posted on the notice boards around the university and under Links and Documents present in the relevant webpages of the International Office.
