First Erasmus+ calls of 2021-2027 launched!
As of 25 March, the first calls for proposals for the new Erasmus+ programme have been launched, with a €2,4 billion budget for 2021. Organisations from EU Member States and associated countries active in the field of Education, Training, Youth and Sport can now apply for project funding.
Not a moment to lose
Although deadlines vary according to the type of project, a majority of calls will close as early as May.
This call is open to a wide range of potential beneficiaries including universities, NGOs, associations, research institutions and many more. Having a great project or idea is only the starting point, however. To find out how you can benefit from Erasmus+ and prepare a winning proposal, simply get in touch with our Bid Management team.
One of the EU's most successful programmes in education, training, youth and sport, Erasmus+ will support mobility and cooperation projects in Europe and beyond with a total budget of €26,2 billion for the 2021-2027 period.
This increased budget, compared to the 2014-2020 programme, is just one of its new features: Erasmus+ is more inclusive, more green, more digital and more international.
Alongside its traditional mobility projects, such as student and staff exchanges to enhance skills and the development of individuals, there will be a special focus on including people from more diverse backgrounds. In addition to this, Erasmus+ also offers new opportunities for organisations to strengthen their capacities and internationalisation, enhance their resilience and support innovation through a variety of cooperation and policy initiatives projects.
Beyond the well-known mobility projects, in 2021 Erasmus+ will support brand new cooperation projects. Building on the huge success of the pilot initiative European Universities, increased budget is dedicated to their full roll-out. The introduction of the new small scale partnerships opens the way for smaller and newcomer organisations to benefit from Erasmus+ support.
