EU programme for education, training, youth and sport

Data visualisation on learning mobility projects

Key Action 1 is the flagship part of the programme and supports learning mobility projects. The programme offers pupils, students, apprentices, volunteers, teachers, academic staff and youth workers opportunities for all with a lifelong learning perspective.

Through the unique experience of living, studying, training, teaching or travelling abroad, participants gain knowledge and skills, self-confidence and transversal skills. They discover different cultures and build networks of interpersonal and professional relationships with people from other countries. This fosters their employability and active participation in society and contributes to a greater social inclusion and a strengthened European identity.

You can explore the data on mobility projects below.


The charts above show the number of participants who started their learning or teaching mobility between 1 January and 31 December of each year, with the corresponding distribution per gender or profile (staff or learners). Figures do not include international mobility with partner countries worldwide. Both charts will update together upon selecting either a set of years, gender or type of participant.


Data for the current and the previous year in particular – in this case 2023 and 2024 – are provisional and will increase further. 

This is because Erasmus+ projects may take up to three years to complete, and are deemed final only after all financial reporting and control procedures have been completed.

Overcoming global challenges

The new Erasmus+ reached cruising speed in 2022, demonstrating its capacity to fully absorb additional funding. The COVID-19 pandemic had strongly affected physical mobility during 2020 and 2021, affecting young people more than others, while also impacting their social life and the development of relations with their peers. This highlighted the importance of mental health and resilience, as well as civic education, citizenship, critical thinking and social participation. 

The programme responded by strongly boosting its support to digital education readiness and creative and youth skills. In 2022, Erasmus+ was already supporting a higher number of mobilities than during pre-pandemic years.

The Russian war of aggression on Ukraine further saw the programme showing a high level of implementation flexibility in projects towards Ukrainian students and staff. Erasmus+ supported projects promoting educational activities and facilitating the integration of people fleeing the war in Ukraine into their new learning environments, as well as activities supporting organisations, learners and staff in Ukraine.

With mobility always a core feature of Erasmus+, the programme offers participants a higher level of grant support in mobility as of 2024. This comes in the context of inflation and escalating price levels that have affected participants and the programme's implementation, improving further on adjustments to the rates of individual support in 2023 (by 12,27%).


Erasmus+ is a very wide programme, covering a diverse range of actions. The programme is active in many countries all over the world where students, trainees, school pupils, adult learners, young people as well as youth workers, administrative, teaching, training and sport staff carry out their learning mobility activity.

Participants taking part in learning mobility apply through their university, training centre or other organisation applying for grants to run Erasmus+ projects.


This map presents outbound/inbound participants per country (definitions are published in the glossary). 

You can move your mouse over the map to see the numbers. You can use the buttons above to toggle between Outbound and Inbound, or reset the filters.

The interactive chart above shows mobility flows between countries since 2014. Colours are related to the sending country. For example, moving the mouse over Spain will highlight all its in/outbound flows and the total count of participants. The same can be done at flow level.

Data is subject to changes and becomes final upon completion of projects. Project duration ranges from 12 to 36 months depending on the field.
