Erasmus+ : for the mobility and cooperation in Europe

Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. Part of the Europe 2020 strategy, the programme promotes mobility projects within Europe, strengthening employability and skills for all. Furthermore, it supports the innovation and the globalization of good practices in higher education, fostering cooperation between European and non-European countries.
