On 25 March 2021, the European Commission launched the new 2021-2027 Erasmus + Program.
The Program budget is 26.2 billion euros, to which will be added approximately 2.2 billion euros from the EU's external instruments. The final amount is almost double the budget during the 2014-2020 programming period, which was 14.7 billion euros.
The new Erasmus + Program continues to offer exchange opportunities for study, teaching and training for students and teaching staff. It supports international partnerships among organizations operating in the education and training sectors in order to foster collaboration and bring the world of education and work closer together. A specific aim is to address the current need for specfic skill sets in Europe.
The Erasmus + 2021-2027 Program also introduces many innovations in order to be more inclusive, to support green and digital transitions, promoting investment in initiatives that raise awareness of environmental issues and in projects that aim to develop highly specialized digital skills.
