New EU Programme agreed – Erasmus+

Eu call opportunities



The EU Irish Presidency has today announced agreement on Erasmus +, the new EU programme for education, training, youth and sport.

Erasmus+ will bring together the Lifelong Learning Programme (Leonardo, Comenius, Grundtvig, Erasmus and Jean Monnet actions), Youth in Action and five other international programmes including Erasmus Mundus and Tempus.

The agreement comes following negotiations brokered by the Irish Presidency between EU member states and the European Parliament.

The Irish Minister for Education and Skills, Ruairí Quinn, T.D., said:

“Erasmus + will improve the employability of young people and open up new opportunities for them. Since 2007, approximately 400,000 people a year across Europe have benefited from the current programmes, and today’s development means that many more people of all ages and backgrounds will be eligible for these supports.”
