Over €2 billion in funding available for education, training, youth and sport projects.

The new Erasmus+ Programme Guide (now also available in an online format) and Call have been published, with opportunities for funding in the areas of education, training, youth, and sport.

This year's budget has increased by almost €300 million since 2016, representing an increase of almost 13%.

The major changes since 2016 include:

  • The introduction of the concept of “European priorities in the national context” under KA2 Strategic Partnership. For more information on this, please visit the website of each relevant National Agency.
  • The funding rules for some decentralized actions have been fine-tuned,
  • The action "Sector Skills Alliances" is no longer covered by this General Call and Programme Guide and will be dealt with separately through a Specific Call for Proposals announced by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.

As with last year, there will be a special focus on encouraging projects that support social inclusion, notably of refugees and migrants, as well as projects that prevent radicalisation.

More information on how to apply is available in the Guide, as well as the opportunities pages, the National Agencies, and the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.
