Erasmus-Plus - unlimited education

Erasmus+ is the program of the European Union for education, youth and sport. On January 1st, 2014, it came into effect and replaced the EU-education program on lifelong learning (2007-2013). The previous programs of the EU, such as Erasmus, Erasmus-Mundus, Leonardo and Marie Curie, have been superseded or rather redefined and bundled by new mobility programs.

The enhancement of the competences and employability of young people through the encouragement of mobility is the main goal and task of Erasmus-Plus. The plan is to modernize the state structures of the educational and training systems, to further develop child and youth welfare, and to improve transnational co-operations.

EACEA – The coordinating office for Erasmus+

The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) is the central coordinating office for Erasmus+ at the EU level. It is the lead agency responsible for the design, implementation and monitoring of the central programs. National offices support the EACEA by taking over decentralized programs and tasks.

Further Information regarding the EACEA can be found at European Commission / EACEA.
