Erasmus+ Programme 2021-2027

The European Commission aims at a strong Higher Education sector in Europe in order to be able to compete with the rest of the world. International cooperation and mobility will strengthen Europe’s position and visibility in the world and increase competitiveness in Europe’s neighbouring area. The Commission facilitates this by providing scholarships to both European and non-European students and staff and by supporting university management and capacity building projects.


The European programme for individual mobility and projects for Education, Training, Youth and Sports is called Erasmus+. The programme runs from 1 January 2021 till 1 January 2028.

In order to participate in the Erasmus+ programme, universities need to have received the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2021-2027, which lays down the rules and regulations of the programme for both mobility and international projects. The Erasmus Policy Statement, drawn up by the institution itself, is related to the Erasmus Charter.

In spring 2021, the new E+ programme 2021-2027 was launched. On March 25 the Programme Guide was published, containing all information on this new programme.

The EU describes the new E+ programme not as a ‘revolution’, but as an ‘evolution’. Many aspects of the previous programme are still part of it, but there are some novelties and new priorities.

The main priorities are

  • Inclusion and Diversity
  • Digital Transformation
  • Environment and fight against climate change
  • Participation in democratic life

Specific attention is given to:

  • Protection, health and safety of participants
  • Multilingualism
  • International dimension
  • Recognition and validation of skills and qualifications

On the website of our National Agency (at Nuffic), you can find more information on the actions in the new programme.
