This year’s significant increase in participation is a sign of the programme’s success and far-reaching impact. There were over 2,000 more events held than during Erasmus+ Days last year.

Special efforts were made by the Erasmus+ National Agencies and the National Erasmus+ Offices so that beneficiaries could share their success stories both in person and online.

Events for everyone

Events, ranging from festivals and conferences to exhibitions and sports activities, were open to the public. 

They were organised by a wide range of Erasmus+ beneficiaries, including schools, universities, vocational education institutions, and youth organisations.

Erasmus+ Days 2023 brought people together to share knowledge, exchange cultures, and celebrate diversity.

Stories and personal experiences from people around the world who took part in the actions were shared on social media.
