Erasmus+

EU programme for education, training, youth and sport

Erasmus+: The EU education programme for 2021 to 2027

2021 marks the start of a new seven year programme generation. The focus is on social inclusion, the green energy transformation and the digital revolution as well as on encouraging young people to take an active part in democracy. The year 2021 will be a transition period between the previous programme generation (see below) and the new one, which will not be implemented properly until 2022 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Support for higher education

Based on three key actions, the programme provides support for higher education and a range of sectors. A distinction is made between centralised and decentralised applications and actions. The European Commission’s Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency in Brussels is responsible for centralised actions. Applications for decentralised actions are managed in each programme country by national agencies; in Germany the agency responsible for elements of the programme related to higher education is the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

Key action 1: Learning mobility of individuals

(DAAD website)

The first key action supports the mobility of individuals for the purpose of learning.  The focus is on the interdisciplinary topics of digitalisation, inclusion, ‘green Erasmus’ and civic engagement. Advances in digitalisation are reflected not only in Erasmus without Papers (EWP), but also in new openings for funding such as ‘blended mobility’ or ‘blended intensive programmes’.

Information for FAU students who would like to study abroad with the Erasmus+ programme is available on the page about studying with Erasmus+.  

Information for FAU lecturers and non-academic staff who would like to complete a stay abroad (as a guest lecturer or for further training) is available on our Lecturer and staff mobility (international) web pages.

Participants in any of the funding lines with a disability and students with a child who wish to apply for a stay abroad can apply for special funding.

Key action 2: Cooperation projects

 

Key action 2 will continue to encourage cooperation between institutes of higher education, and provide various funding lines for different aims, focal areas and regional approaches (see diagram).

Key action 2 will also focus on the horizontal priorities of digitalisation, green Erasmus, inclusion and civic engagement (participation in democratic life).

(DAAD website)

  • European universities
  • Innovation alliances
  • Cooperation partnerships (examples of projects are available, for example, at the Innovation in Learning Institute (ILI))
  • Teaching academies
  • Capacity building in higher education
  • Joint Master’s programmes, Erasmus Mundus design measures
  • Jean Monnet actions (study and research on European integration)
  •  Sport (actions in the field of sport focus on general sport for all. For the first time, the new programme will provide funding to encourage the European mobility of sport coaches)

All applications at the university level ought to be filed either in a decentralised procedure with the national agency, the DAAD, or, depending on the specific line, centrally in the European Commission’s Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency in Brussels. If you would like to apply for one of these actions, please contact one of FAU’s EU Co-ordinators.

Key action 3: Support to policy development and coordination

(DAAD website)

Key action 3 funds projects promoting reform processes in the field of education politics.  This is a centralised action managed by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency in Brussels.

The aims of Erasmus+ policy development support are:

  • Support for policy reform with cooperation projects over several country borders
  • Contribution towards making European university reforms more effective and more efficient.
  • Encouraging innovative approaches
  • Increasing flexibility and transparency of European education systems
  • Promoting results-oriented political dialogue (by connecting educational sectors and stakeholders)

Erasmus+: The EU education programme for 2014 to 2020 – due to expire soon.

The EuRopean Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students – Erasmus+ – is the new EU programme for education, training, youth and sport which was launched on 1 January 2014.  Some funding projects running under key action 1 from rounds 2019 and 2020 will still continue until 31 July 2022 or 2023. This applies in particular to projects with universities in partner countries (international credit mobility – KA107). KA103 will also fund mobility for students and staff to the United Kingdom until 31 March 2023.
