Erasmus+ and the Commission's priorities
See how Erasmus+ is focusing on the priorities of the European Commission from 2019 to 2024.
Addressing Europe's challenges
The Erasmus+ programme aims to help generations of Europeans to become active citizens, with the skills, knowledge and experience to tackle the challenges facing our society, both now and in the years to come.
These challenges include rising unemployment, climate change, economic and post-conflict migration, digitalisation, globalisation, physical inactivity and the multilingual structure of Europe’s united but diverse nations.
Erasmus+ funds projects that help us move towards a more circular, green economy, where little is wasted, and pollution is minimised. Other projects nurture the democratic process in Europe and its influence globally. Some projects focus on inclusion of those who are socially or economically marginalised, while others help prepare today’s youth for an increasingly digital world.
The European Commission has six political priorities for the period 2019-2024. Below you can explore some of the programme's highlighted projects, and see how they are helping these priorities become reality.
