Erasmus +: EU programme for Education, Training, Youth, and Sport for 2014-2020

The new EU programme for Education, Training, Youth, and Sport for 2014-2020, Erasmus+, brings together seven existing EU programmes (including Tempus) in the fields of Education, Training, and Youth; and for the first time provides support for Sport. As an integrated programme, it offers more opportunities for international cooperation across the Education, Training, Youth, and Sport sectors.
The Erasmus+ programme aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernising Education, Training, and Youth work.
Erasmus+ supports transnational partnerships among Education, Training, and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing.
It also supports national efforts to modernise Education, Training, and Youth systems. In the field of Sport, there is support for grassroots projects and cross-border challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.
