Erasmus+ is the European Union's programme to support education, training, youth and sport.

With a seven-year period from 2021 to 2027 the Erasmus+ programme has an estimated budget of around EUR 26 billion. 

It will be more inclusive than its predecessor programme, and it will contribute to green and digital transformation. Erasmus+ is a key instrument in the implementation of the European Education Area, the new Digital Education Action Plan and the European Skills Agenda.
