What is Erasmus+?

Erasmus+ is a European program whose general objective is to support, through lifelong learning, the educational, professional and personal development of individuals in the fields of education, training, youth and sport in Europe and in the countries where are located at partner universities. The European Commission is ultimately responsible for implementing the Erasmus+ Program, as well as managing the budget and defining the Programme's priorities, goals and criteria.

Erasmus+ projects are presented and managed by participating organizations and, as a general rule, these must be established in an EU Member State or third country associated with the Programme. If a project is selected, the candidate organization becomes the beneficiary of an Erasmus+ grant. Beneficiaries then sign a grant agreement that entitles them to receive financial support to carry out the respective project. Such approved projects give rise to several subprograms, but those that arouse the most interest are student and teacher mobility.
