Erasmus+ Sport Info Day


Erasmus+ Sport Info Day

30 March 2021

On 23-24 March the Erasmus+ Sport InfoDay was held and provided information about the political context, new Erasmus+ programme, funding opportunities, and changes in the grant application procedures in 2021. 

During the course of the event opened by Commissioner Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, speakers representing the EU as well as other organisations discussed policy and gave advice and tips on preparing and submitting applications, sharing on the financial aspects of funding as well. The event was available in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and "Sign language".

Commissioner Mariya Gabriel emphasised the programme's importance: The fact that the Erasmus+ budget for the next seven years has almost doubled shows the importance given to education, lifelong learning and youth in Europe. Erasmus+ remains a unique programme in terms of its size, scope and global recognition, covering 33 countries, and accessible to the rest of the world through its international activities. I invite all public and private organisations active in the fields of education, training, youth and sport to look at the newly published calls for proposals and apply for funding. Thanks to Erasmus+, we will make the European education area a reality.”

The new Erasmus+ programme provides many opportunities ranging from study periods abroad, traineeships, apprenticeships, and staff exchanges in all fields of education, training, youth and sport. In the field of sport, it supports cooperation partnerships for projects tackling the priorities set by the Erasmus+ Programme (consult the Erasmus+ Programme Here [PDF]).

Known as Erasmus+ since 2014, when it enlarged its original scope of activities, this emblematic programme is ranked by Europeans as the EU's third most positive result, just after free movement and peace. Over the last three decades, more than 10 million people have participated in the programme, in 33 countries (EU plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, North Macedonia, Norway, Serbia and Turkey). The international arm of Erasmus+ will offer mobility and cooperation in education, training, youth and sport around the world.
