CALL OPEN: Apply for this year’s first deadline for support for cross-border youth, adult education and vocational training initiatives and projects.
Erasmus Plus supports cross-border mobility, activities and projects focusing on young people, adult education, vocational training, higher education, schools and/or sport. Applications are open to organisations (not individuals) active in education, training and youth.
There are three ‘Key Actions’ under Erasmus Plus.
KEY ACTION 1 focuses on mobility of learners and staff and initiatives that create opportunities to study, work, volunteer, teach or train abroad.
KEY ACTION 2 focuses on improving professional practice through ‘strategic’ partnerships between organisations in different countries. These longer-term, deeper connections enable organisations to share, develop and transfer knowledge, ideas and resources.
KEY ACTION 3 focuses on improving policy across Europe, creating opportunities for young people to have structured dialogue with policymakers.
The first deadlines are for Key Action 1 Projects (mobility) in youth; vocational training and education; adult education; schools; and higher education. There are also later upcoming deadlines for Key Action 2 (Strategic Partnerships) and Key Action 3 (Policy for Youth).
