Erasmus

Erasmus+ is the EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. The objective of the programme is to contribute to the Europe 2020 strategy for growth, jobs, social equity and inclusion by modernising and improving the quality of teaching, training and youth work across Europe. Erasmus+ also aims to promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education, and contribute to achieving the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy.  It has a budget of €14.7 billion and it is expected to  provide opportunities for over 4 million people to study, train, gain experience, and volunteer abroad. Erasmus+ Programme consists of several actions and activities. Erasmus action covers the activities exclusively related to the field of higher education. This action contribute to the aims of the Erasmus+ Programme by encouraging international cooperation among universities, by providing exchange of students and academics in Europe, by recognizing the studies and degrees held in the participating countries; and by improving transparency. The 28 European Union member countries, EFTA countries (Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein), Republic of Macedonia and Turkey can benefit from this programme. The programme was named after the Dutch scientist Erasmus (1469-1536), one of the most important representatives of the Renaissance Humanism, who was studied and taught at various countries in Europe.
