In 2014 the new European Union programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport Erasmus+ for 2014-2020 became operative. The Erasmus+ programme aims to boost skills and employability, as well as modernising Education, Training, and Youth work. The seven year programme will have a budget of €14.7 billion; a 40% increase compared to current spending levels, reflecting the EU’s commitment to investing in these areas. Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad. Erasmus+ will support transnational partnerships among Education, Training, and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe. It will also support national efforts to modernise Education, Training, and Youth systems.
Erasmus+ brings together seven existing EU programmes in the fields of Education, Training, and Youth: subprogrammes within Lifelong Learning Programme (LLL): Grundtvig, Erasmus, Leonardo and Comenius; international high education programmes: Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink, bilateral programmes; The Youth in Action Programme.
