Erasmus+ Programme (EU Programme 2014-2021)

The new Erasmus+ Programme aims to support actions in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2021.

Erasmus+ replaces seven programmes bringing together:

  • The Lifelong Learning Programme (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Comenius and Grundtvig);
  • The Youth in Action programme;
  • Five international cooperation programmes (Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Edulink, the programme for cooperation with industrialised countries;
  • The new sport action.

Erasmus+ provides grants for a wide range of actions and activities in the fields of education, training, youth and sport. The programme gives opportunities to students, trainees, staff and volunteers to spend a period abroad to increase their skills and employability. It supports organisations to work in transnational partnership and to share innovative practices in the fields of education, training and youth.

The actions of the Erasmus+ programme are divided into decentralised actions and centralised actions. The decentralised actions are managed in Portugal by the Agência Nacional para o Programa Erasmus+ Educação e Formação. The centralised actions are managed at a European level by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) located in Brussels.

For strands of the Erasmus+ Programme that work with countries outside the EU and other Programme Countries (i.e. Partner Countries), National Erasmus Offices  have been set up in a number of these eligible Partner Countries. For those interested in Programme Countries, National Agencies also have an International Contact Point for these strands.

The application process for the centralised actions is initiates in one of the following ways:

  • Certain actions are included in the General Call for proposals and the details of these actions are outlined in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide;
  • Specific Calls for proposals;
  • Restricted Calls for proposals (are relevant only to bodies nominated by the national authorities in Erasmus+ programme countries to undertake specific work - studies, management of strategic initiatives etc);
  • Calls for tenders (are published when services are required to provide a limited number of highly specific services).
