Improving cross-border education
The purpose of the EU Programme for education, training, youth and sport, also known as Erasmus+, is to support education, training, youth and sport. The programme is designed to stimulate and improve cross-border education and training opportunities.
Who can apply for Erasmus+?
Applications can be submitted by any public or private organisation whose activities centre around education, vocational training, youth and sport.

- Leonardo da Vinci: for vocational education and training;
- Grundtvig: for adult education;
- Youth in action: for non-formal and informal learning related to youth;
- Sport: for sport-related activities.
The programme supports a range of activities and actions:
- Pertaining to education and training, these are: individual learning mobility; collaboration centred around innovation and the exchange of best practices; support of policy reformation; and the specific Jean Monnet activities;
- Pertaining to youth: individual learning mobility, collaboration centred around innovation and the exchange of best practices; and support of policy reformation;
