The Erasmus+ Programme Guide is essential to understanding Erasmus+. It provides participating organisations and individuals a comprehensive list of opportunities supported by the programme.

The 2021 Programme Guide is available as an online version, with a more user-friendly, accessible format to make it easier to find information, as well as a PDF version.


What is it?

The document provides information on:

  • the priorities of the programme,
