Funding scheme

The European Union's Erasmus+ program is a funding scheme to support activities in the fields of Education, Training, Youth and Sport.

The program is made up of three "Key Actions" and two additional activities - Jean Monnet and Sport. At the national level, they are managed by various national agencies, while at the European level they are run by the EACEA. As an executive branch of the EU, the European Commission is responsible for Erasmus+ policies and also oversees the overall program implementation.

Society Support Alliance is also working within the Erasmus+ Youth Program to empower young people and provide them with new possibilites of personal and professional development, such as mobility in education, training and youth sectors (KA1) as well as the entrepreneurial know-how (KA2). The aims and objectives of Erasmus+ in the funding period 2014-2020 are education and training at all levels in a lifelong learning perspective, including school education, higher education, international higher education, vocational education and training as well as adult learning.
