ERASMUS + PROGRAM
€2.5 billion available for Erasmus+ in 2017, a 13% increase compared to 2016 and record rise since the start of the Erasmus+ programme
Today, the European Commission published its 2017 Call for Proposals for Erasmus+, the European Union’s programme for education, training, youth and sport. For 2017, funds available for the programme have increased by almost €300 million compared to 2016, also representing a record annual rise of funds since the first year of the Erasmus+ programme (2014). This will benefit Erasmus students, but also teachers, apprentices, volunteers and young people involved in sport projects, while also supporting cooperation between education institutions, youth organisations and businesses. As in 2016, priority will be given to projects promoting social inclusion. Tibor Navracsics, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, said: "I am very pleased that we will have €2.5 billion in 2017 to build on our activities to reach out to a broad range of people with different interests, profiles and social backgrounds. Ahead of its 30thanniversary next year, Erasmus+ is at cruising speed and offers more opportunities for people and projects than ever before." The increase in budget is an acknowledgement of the positive impact of the programme on the lives and personal projects of people all over Europe. As the European Commission’s President Jean-Claude Juncker highlighted in his annual State of the European Union speech on 14 September, Erasmus+ is of major importance as it gives people the chance to move, travel, work, study and train in countries across the EU. The funds available for 2017 will also be used to implement the European Solidarity Corps announced in the same speech. From today, organisations wishing to apply for funds can start to prepare their grant applications. More background information is available online.
