Erasmus+ is the European Union Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2021-2027. It has a budget of €26.2 billion for all of Europe, to fund learning mobility and cooperation projects for Europeans of all ages and backgrounds.
The general objective of the Programme is to support, through lifelong learning, the educational, professional and personal development of people in education, training, youth and sport, in Europe and beyond, thereby contributing to sustainable growth, quality jobs and social cohesion, to driving innovation, and to strengthening European identity and active citizenship.

All European Priorities in the 2023 Erasmus+ Call are all relevant to the national context and therefore the National Agency will accept proposals that address any of the priorities: Horizontal, Field-specific (For KA2 proposals) and also additional National priorities.
