International office, Erasmus+ Coordinator
Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. The 2021-2027 programme places a strong focus on social inclusion, the green and digital transitions, and promoting young people’s participation in democratic life.
European citizens need to be better equipped with the knowledge, skills and competences needed in a dynamically changing society that is increasingly mobile, multicultural and digital. Spending time in another country to study, to learn and to work should become the standard, and the opportunity to learn two other languages in addition to one's mother tongue should be offered to everyone. The Programme is a key component supporting the objectives of the European Education Area, the Digital Education Action Plan 2021-2027, the European Union Youth Strategy and the European Union Work Plan for Sport (2021-24). More general and detailed information about the Erasmus+ programme is available here.
Purpose and goal of Erasmus+ programs is to enable vast varieties of experience for individuals that will bring long-term positive effects on their growth, capabilities, professionalism on private and career level. Through connection of different areas and organisations programs encourage development, transfer and execution of innovative practice on local and global level, as well as support and modernize systems of education, work and youth trainings for their ability to respond to today’s challenges.
Detailed information on these opportunities, including eligibility criteria, is available in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.
