Erasmus+: nearly €3.9 billion in 2022 for mobility and cooperation in education, training, youth and sport

December 8, 2021

    The European Commission launched the calls for proposals under Erasmus+ call for 2022, following the adoption of the 2022 annual work programme. With an increased budget of nearly €3.9 billion for the next year, Erasmus+ will continue to provide opportunities for study periods abroad, traineeships, apprenticeships, and staff exchanges and cross border cooperation projects in different areas of education and training, youth and sport. In addition to the general call, the annual work programme also includes other actions to be launched separately, such as the European Universities initiative.


     Vice-President for Promoting our European Way of Life, Margaritis Schinas, said: “The launch of the new 2022 Erasmus+ calls have a special resonance. 2022 will mark the 35 anniversary of the programme, but also the year dedicated to youth. Erasmus has been an unforgettable experience for many years, let 2022 be even more unforgettable! With this new Erasmus year, we hope to make the experience more inclusive and more far-reaching, for young people to learn and travel after many difficult months.”

     Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Mariya Gabriel, said: "Next year Erasmus+ will be celebrating 35 years of successfully providing opportunities for people to study, learn and get training experience abroad. All participants say that it is a life-changing experience, one that marked their personal and professional paths and left lasting memories of what it means to live in the European Union. We want to give the opportunity to a greater number of people to take part and benefit from what Erasmus+ has to offer. We will also celebrate in 2022 the European Year of Youth and Erasmus+ will play a central role.”

     The total budget available for Erasmus+ from 2021 to 2027 amounts to €26.2 billion, complemented with about €2.2 billion from EU's external instruments. Erasmus+ mobility and cooperation projects support the green and digital transitions, while fostering active citizenship and greater participation in democratic life. Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, it also contributed to the resilience of education and training systems. Inclusion remains a core principle of the programme to allow more people to learn and participate in international projects but also to reach out to increasing numbers of people with fewer opportunities.

     For reference. Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. The 2021-2027 programme places a strong focus on social inclusion, the green and digital transitions, and promoting young people’s participation in democratic life. It supports priorities and activities set out in the European Education Area, Digital Education Action Plan and the European Skills Agenda. The programme also

  • supports the European Pillar of Social Rights
  • implements the EU Youth Strategy 2019-2027
  • develops the European dimension in sport

     Erasmus + provides grants for a wide range of actions and activities in the fields of education, training, youth and sport. The programme gives opportunities to students, trainees, staff and volunteers to spend a period abroad to increase their skills and employability. It supports organisations to work in transnational partnership and to share innovative practices in the fields of education, training and youth. The new sport action will support grassroots projects and cross-border challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.

    For the successful participation of organizations in new competitions, the Directorate General of the European Commission for Education, Youth and Sport in cooperation with the European Agency for Education and Culture of the European Commission and Erasmus + office in Ukraine conduct a number of international online events.

     In December 2021, since the opening of competitions, the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine, the Ministry of Youth and Sports of Ukraine together with the EU Delegation to Ukraine and the National Erasmus + Office in Ukraine and other partners plan to hold a series of online events with detailed presentation of opportunities and participation conditions in all open competitions in 2022 for Ukrainian organizations.

To greater success with the support of the European Union!
