Erasmus+ is the European Union's programme which supports activities in the education-, training-, youth- and sport field.
The programme offers opportunities for both, individuals and organisations: They give individuals the opportunity to spend a period abroad and to receive linguistic education. Organisations are supported to collaborate in project partnerships in the sectors of academic and vocational training, schools, adult learning and European sport events.
As we are an organisation, we want to introduce the actions of this section. The programme for organisations is divided up into 3 Key Actions and 2 additional actions.
Key Action 1 – Learning mobility of individuals: This Key Action supports organisations, who want to send or receive students and staff to or from participating countries. Organisations who line up activities which focus on teaching, training, learning or volunteering also belong to this action.
Key Action 2 – Cooperation for innovation and good practices: Key Action 2 is created to develop the education, training, and youth sectors, these are the five main activities: Strategic partnerships, Knowledge Alliances, Sector Skills Alliances, Capacity-building projects in the field of higher education and Capacity-building projects in the field of youth
Key Action 3 – Support for policy reform: Key Action 3 focuses on young people in democratic life; both, discussions with policy makers, as well as developing knowledge in the sections: education, training, and youth.
Jean Monnet: This action gives opportunities for teaching, research, and policy debate on the EU and its policies.
Sport: Last but not least, there is an action for sports. It promotes sport and physical activity, identify and implement innovative activities in the field of sport, and manage not-for-profit events to increase participation in sport.
