The successful Erasmus+ programme for education, training, youth and sports is being continued for the 2021-2027 period.

Erasmus+ offers various mobility and cooperation opportunities, not only in higher education but also in vocational education and training, school and adult education as well as in youth work and sports.

For the next seven years, the new programme generation focusses on the topics of Inclusion and Diversity, Green Erasmus, Digital Transformation as well as Common Values, Civic Engagement and Participation.

These priorities will be implemented through new elements, such as blended and short-term mobility as well as green travel. Furthermore, the new programme offers more room for international mobilities.

To pave the way for all this, the European Commission has almost doubled the budget compared to the 2014-2020 period. This means that 26.2 billion euro are available for the new programme generation, plus an additional 2.2 billion euro from the Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI).

Austria is anticipated to have more than 550 million euro at its disposal for the whole programme period. In its role as National Agency, the OeAD (Agency for Education and Internationalisation) is responsible for the implementation of Erasmus+ in Austria.
