The New Programme (2021-2027)
As of 2021 a new Erasmus+ Programme has been announced and it will cover the funding of projects for the next 7 years!
The budget is almost double, from 14.7 to 26 billion euros, and aims to fund 10 million mobility projects over the next seven years!
The Erasmus+ Programme seeks to promote equal opportunities and access, inclusion and fairness across all its actions.
The new guidelines reflect the vision of the EU and focus on:
- Environmental sustainability
- Inclusion and Diversity
- Implementation of Digital technology
- Common values, civic engagement and participation
What’s more the new Erasmus+ Progamme aims to develop the strategic European dimension of the involved schools and organizations.
Most funding will be devolved to those applicants who have a clear intention to develop their international dimension and to participate in European projects on a continuous basis.
The new Erasmus+ Progamme will not leave behind schools and organizations that have never met the Programme before, and have less resources and/or logistic capacities.
It will dedicate special calls for applications for these organizations, and support them to familiarize themselves with the Programme, and take part in simpler projects that are easier to implement.
The possibilities of professional development offered by the Programme will now be open also to pre-schools and kindergartens.
Finally, the new Programme will be more inclusive because it will aim to involve the participation of everyone, with budget costs dedicated to the necessities of students with special needs (e.g., mobility funding for an accompanying person, or for the rent of special vehicles for transportation).
Participating schools will also be able to use a special part of their grant funding for the linguistic preparation of the participants. At present, it is clear that this will include participation in online courses although it is unknown whether it will also include face-to-face classes.
The new Programme will officially consider the possibility of blended mobility. Schools will be able to plan some international activities as online meetings, thus expanding the means available to engage even more participants than before.
At Erasmus+ Greece we have already included those priorities and new opportunites in our existing but also new courses, to help you with your application process.
