What changes can we find in the 2020 annual work programme of “Erasmus+”: the Union Programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport?

  • The pilot activity on European Universities will be reinforced. The selected projects will increase the performance, attractiveness, and competitiveness of higher education institutions on a European scale.
  • Inclusion of a new action on Centres of Vocational Excellence aimed at establishing world-class reference points for both initial as well as continuing training in specific sectors.
  • Further efforts will be made to optimize, stabilize and improve the performance and user-friendliness of the IT tools supporting the implementation of the Programme.

We can also find other novelties concerning:

  • Grants awarded by exception to Calls for Proposals in KA2 and KA3,
  • Grants awarded by means of Specific Calls for Proposals in KA3,
  • Specific grants awarded under a Framework Partnership in KA3. 

The differences between the annuals 2019 and 2020 concerning KA2 and KA3 are presented below:
