Erasmus plus is the EU’s European funding program for education, training, youth and sport. With the new European programming for 2021-2027, more than 26 billion euros have been allocated to Erasmus+, with a substantial budget increase compared to the 2014-2020 period. The budget increase was planned to further strengthen the program by making it even more inclusive and make some improving changes while maintaining continuity with the previous program. The program pursues the following objectives:
- Improving basic skills to help building cohesive societies through strengthened cooperation between the world of training and education and the world of work;
- Strengthening the quality, excellence, innovation and internationalization of educational institutions and training providers;
- Supporting the modernization of education and training systems in the European Union;
- Developing the international dimension of education and training, increasing the attractiveness of European organizations active in these fields.
