12 Graphs: Eight programmes replaced by Erasmus+

Written by Clare Ferguson,

The Erasmus+ programme (2014-2020) has a €15 000 million budget to support EU action on education, training, youth and sport. The programme replaced eight previous programmes: Comenius, Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Grundtvig, Youth in Action, Erasmus Mundus, ALFA III, Tempus and Edu-link.

To boost jobs and growth for young people especially, the programme focuses on boosting individual learning, innovation and exchange of good educational practices and supporting European integration studies through the Jean Monnet sub-programme. To address the situation of young people outside the EU and to foster good relations, it also supports higher education in neighbouring and enlargement countries, and international exchanges. The programme supports the European Voluntary Service, involving an estimated 100 000 young people in international volunteering.

Contrary to the previous programme, sport activities are also now a focus of the Erasmus+ programme, with an allocation of €265 million for 2014-2020 to help improve the physical fitness of children and young people in the EU.
