ERASMUS + IS THE NEW EU 2014-2020 PROGRAM FOR EDUCATION, TRAINING, YOUTH, AND SPORT
Erasmus + started on 1 January 2014. The program replaced the previous European Commission funding programs in the areas of education, training, youth, and sport, namely: the Lifelong Learning Program, the Youth Program in Action and other international programs, including Jean Monnet and Erasmus Mundus. The Erasmus + program is designed to support education, training, youth, and sport in all sectors of lifelong learning, including higher education, vocational training, adult education, school education and youth activities.
A NEW APPROACH TO FUNDING IN EDUCATION AND TRAINING
A new structure for the Erasmus + program was proposed to reflect the need for further simplification and rationalization. Bringing together a range of different programs and initiatives of the European Commission it is hoped that its funding program will become more efficient and more accessible. Erasmus + is an integrated program, which means that it is based on Actions. Some activities funded under Lifelong Learning and Youth in Action will disappear and others to be translated into the new structure of Erasmus +.
Erasmus + is a simplified EU funding program for education and training, youth, and sport. The activities are based on different types of opportunities which are all the projects offered by the Erasmus + program grouped into broader actions. Each action represents a different type of project aligned with a given area.
- Action 1: Individual Mobility for Learning Purposes
- Action 2: Cooperation for Innovation and Good Practices
- Action 3: Support for reformulation policies
- Activities Jean Monnet
Action 1: Individual mobility for learning provides opportunities for individuals to improve their skills, increase their employability and gain cultural awareness. This action is a combination of decentralized projects executed by the national agencies and centralized projects managed by the executive agency of the European Commission. Full details of all projects are not yet complete.
