Call for Proposals

European Programme Erasmus+

On 20 October 2015, the call for proposals for the Erasmus+ programme was published by the European Commission.

GENERAL OBJECTIVE

The general objective of the Erasmus+ Programme is to contribute to the achievement of:

- the objectives of the Europe 2020 Strategy, including the headline education target (i.e.  to reduce early school leaving to less than 10% and increase attainment in tertiary education to at least 40% by 2020);

- the objectives of the strategic framework for European cooperation in education and training (ET 2020), including the corresponding benchmarks;

- the sustainable development of Partner Countries in the field of higher education;

-  the overall objectives of the renewed framework for European cooperation in the youth field (2010-2018);

- the objective of developing the European dimension in sport, in particular grassroots sport, in line with the EUwork plan for sport;

-  the promotion of European values in accordance with Article 2 of the Treaty on European Union (i.e. values of respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities).

 

The objectives of the Erasmus+ Programme are therefore the following:

- Reduce early school leaving

- Increase  attainment in tertiary education

- Improve employability and support entrepreneurship

- Improve  innovation and internationalization of education

- Enhance cross-sector strategic partnership

- Promote  social cohesion and active citizenship

 

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES

 

The specific objectives pursued by the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of education and training are to:

- improve the level of key competences and skills, with particular regard to their relevance for the labour market and their contribution to a cohesive society, in particular through increased opportunities for learning mobility and through strengthened cooperation between the world of education and training and the world of work;

- foster quality improvements, innovation excellence and internationalisation at the level of education and training institutions, in particular through enhanced transnational cooperation between education and training providers and other stakeholders;

-promote the emergence and raise awareness of a European lifelong learning area designed to complement policy reforms at national level and to support the modernisation of education and training systems, in particular through enhanced policy cooperation, better use of EU transparency and recognition tools and the dissemination of good practices;

- enhance the international dimension of education and training, in particular through cooperation between Programme and Partner-Country institutions in the field of VET and in higher education, by increasing the attractiveness of European higher education institutions and supporting the EU's external action, including its development objectives, through the promotion of mobility and cooperation between Programme and Partner-Country higher education institutions and targeted capacity building in Partner Countries;

- improve the teaching and learning of languages and promote the EU's broad linguistic diversity and intercultural awareness.

 

The specific objectives pursued by the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of youth are to:

- improve the level of key competences and skills of young people, including those with fewer opportunities, as well as to promote participation in democratic life in Europe and the labour market, active citizenship, intercultural dialogue, social inclusion and solidarity, notably through increased learning mobility opportunities for young people, those active in youth work or youth organisations and youth leaders, and through strengthened links between the youth field and the labour market;

- foster quality improvements in youth work, notably through enhanced cooperation between organisations in the youth field and/or other stakeholders;

- complement policy reforms at local, regional and national level and to support the development of knowledge and evidence-based youth policy as well as the recognition of non-formal and informal learning, notably through enhanced policy cooperation, better use of Union transparency and recognition tools and the dissemination of good practices;

- enhance the international dimension of youth activities and the role of youth workers and organisations as support structures for young people in conjunction with the Union's external action, notably through the promotion of mobility and cooperation between the Union and partner country stakeholders and international organisations and through targeted capacity-building in partner countries.

 

The specific objectives pursued by the Erasmus+ Programme in the field of sport are to: 

- tackle cross-border threats to the integrity of sport, such as doping, match-fixing and violence, as well as all kinds of intolerance and discrimination;

- to promote and support good governance in sport and dual careers of athletes;

- to promote voluntary activities in sport, together with social inclusion, equal opportunities and awareness of the importance of health-enhancing physical activity, through increased participation in, and equal access to sport for all.
