Erasmus+ aims at boosting skills and employability and modernizing Education, Training and Youth work. The seven-year program will have a budget of €14.7 billion. This represents a 40 percent increase compared to current spending levels and shows the EU's commitment to investing in these areas.

Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad. In addition to providing grants for individuals, Erasmus+ will support transnational partnerships among Education, Training and Youth institutions and organizations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe. In the field of Sport, there will be support for grassroots projects and cross-border challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence, and racism.

Erasmus+ brings together seven existing EU programs in the fields of Education, Training and Youth; it will for the first time provide support for Sport. As an integrated program, Erasmus+ offers more opportunities for cooperation across these fields and is easier to access than its predecessors, with simplified funding rules.
