ERASMUS+ 2023 – € 4,2 Billion provided!
On November 23, the European Commission launched the call for proposal for 2023 under the Erasmus+ programme with an annual budget of € 4,2 billion on a total of €26.2 billion for the years 2021-2027. The aim of the Erasmus+ is to increase the support for inclusion, active citizenship, green and digital transformation, both at EU and global level.
The programme will face the challenges, which we expect in 2023 by providing support to learners and educational staff fleeing the war in Ukraine continuing to strive for a more inclusive programme, and building on the legacy of the European Year of Youth. Indeed, the Erasmus+ 2023 call will continue feeding into the EU’s commitment to upskilling and reskilling, thereby providing a valuable contribution to the proposal to make 2023 the European Year of Skills
As stated by Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth: “Erasmus+ has a longstanding tradition of promoting understanding and solidarity among people from all countries and all backgrounds. It has and will continue to inspire inclusion and embrace participants with fewer opportunities. With the new call, I am especially proud that we will open up regular and new activities for learners, educational staff, institutions and organisations impacted by the war in Ukraine.”
Inclusion and diversity are 2 key objectives in the Erasmus+ programme. For this reason, the programme therefore keeps on supporting participants’ inclusion mechanisms and dedicated resources to remove any barriers to their participation.
