€4.3 billion are available for budget for capacity building projects, partnerships for innovation, civil society cooperation & many more opportunities in education, training, youth & sport.
Today, the Commission launched the 2024 call for proposals under Erasmus+, the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. With a budget of €4.3 billion for next year, Erasmus+ will continue to support transnational experiences of school pupils, students in higher education and vocational education and training.
In 2024, the programme will offer stronger incentives for sustainable travel. It will be presented as of 2024 as the default option, with participants from remote areas, islands or places with insufficient rail networks getting adequate compensation for using those sustainable modes of travel. For the first time, travel contributions will also be offered for intra-European higher education mobility. This will ensure more uniform funding rules across all sectors.
Erasmus+ will continue to support Ukraine, through projects that can, for example, encourage incoming learning mobility, equip people fleeing the country with new skills, help fight disinformation or promote the integration of refugees into a new education system.
