Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Any public or private body active in these fields can apply for funding to deliver projects that address the programme’s objectives and priorities. Erasmus+ will also support the resilience of education and training systems in the face of the pandemic.
It has four key priorities for 2021-2027: inclusion, active participation, and supporting green and digital transitions.
This year, in order to make the programme more accessible to newcomers, Erasmus+ has introduced a small-scale partnerships option for projects with a shorter duration and simplified administrative requirements. For full details on the different types of projects and activities supported, check out the Erasmus+ 2021 Programme Guide.
Léargas is the national contact point for the Erasmus+ programme in Ireland.
