The Erasmus+ Programme Guide is essential to understanding Erasmus+. It provides participating organisations and individuals a comprehensive list of opportunities supported by the programme.
The 2020 Programme Guide is available as an online version, with a more user-friendly, accessible format to make it easier to find information, as well as a PDF version.
Key Action 1 aims to encourage the mobility of students, staff, youth workers, and young people. Organisations can arrange to send or receive students and staff to or from participating countries, as well as organise teaching, training, learning activities.
Key Action 2 is designed to develop the education, training, and youth sectors through five main activities:
The European Union’s (EU) five main priorities in the field of higher education are:
Cooperation with non-EU Member States enhances the quality of education and training in the EU and beyond by promoting peer learning and comparative analysis between national education systems worldwide. It boosts innovation and job creation through mobility, and offers opportunities for staff and students to broaden their horizons through participation in EU programmes.
Europe’s universities have a strong record of internationalisation. They have facilitated the development of international curricula and joint degrees, fostered international research and innovation projects, and supported the exchange of students, staff and knowledge.
This has all been made possible by the Bologna process, under which European countries have agreed to restructure their higher education systems to make cross-border cooperation more feasible and more effective.
The EU’s international policy dialogues with countries outside Europe, therefore, often draw on this expertise and experience of the need for internationalisation to go hand in hand with policy reform.
