Culture and Creativity

Projects promote mobility activities for:

  • Learners: pupils, students, trainees, apprentices, young people, adult learners;
  • Staff: professors, teachers, trainers, youth workers, and people working in organisations active in the education, training and youth fields;

Projects mainly aim to support learners in the acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitudes, including language competences.

The overall objective is to mitigate the socio-economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on youth, mainly through capacity building and specific measures supporting the recovery of the youth sector, as well as fostering solidarity and inclusiveness.

These projects create networks promoting regional partnerships, enabling young people across Europe to set up joint projects, organise exchanges and promote training (e.g. for youth leaders) through both physical and online activities.

The Alliances strengthen Europe’s innovation capacity by boosting innovation through cooperation and flow of knowledge among higher education, vocational education and training (both initial and continuous), and more broadly involving a socio-economic context, including research.

Teacher Academies support European partnerships of teacher education and training providers, public authorities and stakeholders.

The Academies develop a European and international outlook in teacher education.

They can be innovative collaborations to develop and test initial teacher education and continuous professional development strategies. Academies can support the formation of networks and communities of practice, provide learning opportunities to teachers, support innovation, and inform the development of national and European teacher education policies.

This action supports the establishment and development of European platforms of Centres of Vocational Excellence, contributing to regional development, innovation, and smart specialisation strategies, as well as to international collaborative platforms.

The platforms are open for the involvement of countries with well-developed vocational excellence systems, as well as those in the process of developing similar approaches.

The platforms are aimed at exploring the full potential of VET institutions to play a proactive role in support of growth and innovation.

These are international cooperation partnerships between organisations active in the field of youth in EU Member States, third countries associated to the programme, and third countries not associated to the programme.

Projects support the international exchanges, cooperation and policy dialogue in the field of youth and non-formal learning, to enhance the sustainable socio-economic development and well-being of young people.

They will:

• Provide young people with opportunities to engage with, and learn to participate in civic society.

Small-scale Partnerships aim to widen access to the Erasmus+ programme for small-scale actors and individuals who are hard to reach in the fields of school education, adult education, vocational education and training and youth.

Grants are for low levels of finance, for projects of short duration.

There are simple administrative requirements Grants are particularly relevant for newcomers to Erasmus+, particularly for organisations with smaller organisational capacity.

Cooperation Partnerships allow organisations to

  • increase the quality and relevance of their activities
  • develop and reinforce their networks of partners
  • increase their capacity to operate jointly at a transnational level
  • boost the internationalisation of their activities
  • exchange and develop new practices and ideas

Projects aim to develop innovative practices, and implement joint initiatives promoting cooperation, along with peer learning and exchanges of experience at the European level.
