Last year the European Commission published the 2020 annual work programme of “Erasmus+”: the Union Programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport. This programme foresees the total amount of funds for all types of appropriations up to 3,384,335,005 euro! Form this amount for the youth sector is intended 212.000.000 euro!
Since the beginning of the ‘Erasmus+’: the Union Programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport many things changed, but not the growing tendency of the funds for the actions under this programme! In 2014 the amount of the fund was almost 1.8 billion euro, when for this year the founds reached almost 3.4 billion euro!

The programme aims to provide over 4 million Europeans with the opportunity to gain competences and have a personal, socio-educational and professional development through studies, training, work experiences or volunteering abroad. Furthermore, the programme also fosters quality improvements, innovation, excellence and internationalisation of organisations active in education and training, youth and sport, and promotes initiatives that support policy reforms at all levels.
In the fields of education, training and youth, the Erasmus+ Programme supports three types of Key Actions:
Key Action 1: Learning mobility of individuals;
Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices;
Key Action 3: Support for policy reform.
As you can compare with the Annual Work Programme of “Erasmus+”: the Union Programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport for the year 2019, these main 3 Key Actions remain the same as last year.
In addition to these three Key Actions, specific activities are also covered by Erasmus+, namely activities related to European integration through Jean Monnet and activities in the field of sport.
Through its different actions, the programme aims to reach a positive and sustainable impact on education, training, youth and sport policies and practices.
