The Erasmus+ programme aims to develop the educational, personal, and professional skills of individuals in the fields of education, training, youth, and sport. Erasmus+ actions are carried out in collaboration between countries, whether within the European space or on other continents.

The programme is divided into three key actions:

Key action 1

This is dedicated to the mobility of students. You can find information on the International Relations Office website or on the Academic Management Service website.

Key action 2

Partnerships for Cooperation

These are projects that allow for gaining experience in international cooperation between research organizations, higher education, or vocational education and training, enabling the creation of transnational networks and associations. The overall objectives are the development of practices and methods that enable the application of inclusion and diversity in education and training, combating climate change, digital transformation, and promoting common civic values.

There are two types of projects:

  • Cooperation partnerships: Management decentralized by national agencies. They can have lump-sum budgets of €120,000, €250,000, or €400,000.
  • Small-scale partnerships: Actions carried out with smaller associations that require development. Budgets of €30,000 or €60,000 can be requested.

Capacity Building in Higher Education

In these actions, capacity development is carried out through multilateral associations between European higher education entities and third-country entities. The objectives, linked to the SDGs programme, seek to improve the capacities of the participating entities, both organizationally and in terms of human resources, with the aim of generating sustainable social and economic development.

Innovation Partnerships

These are partnerships aimed at driving innovation through improving the talent and capabilities of the members of participating organizations. Specifically, it focuses on innovative capacities in circular economy, ecology, and sustainable development.

Key action 3

This action focuses on enhancing political cooperation within the European Union to improve the capacity to formulate and implement public policies. Projects may encompass actions such as implementing the EU policy agenda in education, experimenting with policy measures, or evaluating from previous policy outcomes data, among others.
