On November 24, 2021, the European Commission announced a new Erasmus+ competition for 2022, adopting the Annual Work Programme 2022. With an increased budget of almost 4 billion euros for next year, Erasmus+ will continue to provide opportunities for exchanges of students, teaching staff and internships, as well as creation of cross-border cooperation projects in the field of education and professional development, youth and sports.
The programme will continue to support and encourage young people to participate in democratic life, making a significant contribution to achieving the goals of the European Year of Youth 2022, which was announced in September 2021.
The main innovations introduced in the competitions are:
- Forward-looking projects;
- More exchanges with third countries;
- More inclusive DiscoverEU;
- Bringing the EU closer to schools;
- Simpler financing of cooperation projects.
For the successful participation of organizations in new competitions, the Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture in cooperation with the European Education and Culture Executive Agency conduct a number of international online events on open opportunities and conditions of competitions, as well as the National Erasmus+ Office in Ukraine in cooperation with partners.
More details are available on the website of the National Erasmus+ Office in Ukraine.
