Information regarding Erasmus+

Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth, and sport for the period 2021-2027.

Education, training, youth, and sport are key areas that support citizens in their personal and professional development. High quality, inclusive education, and training, as well as informal and non-formal learning, ultimately equip young people and participants of all ages with the qualifications and skills needed for their meaningful participation in democratic society, intercultural understanding, and successful transition in the labour market. Building on the success of the programme in the period 2014-2020, Erasmus+ strengthens its efforts to increase the opportunities offered to more participants and to a wider range of organisations, focusing on its qualitative impact and contributing to more inclusive and cohesive, greener, and digitally fit societies.

European citizens need to be better equipped with the knowledge, skills and competences needed in a dynamically changing society that is increasingly mobile, multicultural, and digital. Spending time in another country to study, to learn and to work should become the standard, while speaking two other languages in addition to ones’ mother tongue should be the norm. The Programme is a key component supporting the objectives of the European Education Area, the Digital Education Action Plan 2021-2027, the European Youth Strategy, and the European Union Workplan for Sport.

The programme has an overall indicative financial envelope of more than €26 billion of the EU Budget for the seven years (2021-2027).

Additional information on Erasmus+ from 2021 onwards can be found on the European Commission website and in the European Commission Programme Guide or also on the DAAD website (German only).

Who implements the Erasmus+ Programme?

The European Commission
The European Commission is ultimately responsible for the running of the Erasmus+ Programme. It manages the budget and sets priorities, targets, and criteria for the Programme on an on-going basis. Furthermore, it guides and monitors the general implementation, follow-up, and evaluation of the Programme at European level. The European Commission also bears the overall responsibility for the supervision and coordination of the structures in charge of implementing the Programme at national level.
The National Agencies
The implementation of the Erasmus+ Programme is mainly implemented as Indirect Management, meaning that the European Commission entrusts budget implementation tasks to National Agencies; the rationale of this approach is to bring Erasmus+ as close as possible to its beneficiaries and to adapt to the diversity of national education, training, and youth systems. For this purpose, each Programme Country has appointed one or more National Agencies. These National Agencies promote and implement the Programme at national level and act as the link between the European Commission and participating organisations at local, regional, and national level.

The ECHE is awarded by the European Commission and proves that a higher education institution meets all the requirements for successful participation in the Erasmus+ Programme.
