News / Erasmus+ brings over €26.2 billion to support mobility and cooperation
The new Erasmus programme 2021-2027 has been launched. The first annual work programme and the call for 2021 have also been published. The programme’s budget is €26.2 billion, a significant increase compared with €14.7 billion for 2014-2020. This will be complemented by about €2.2 billion from the EU’s external instruments.
With this increased budget, Erasmus+ will be more inclusive, more digital, and greener. It will also include DiscoverEU, which offers 18 year-olds the possibility to get a European rail pass to travel, learn from other cultures and meet fellow Europeans.
