Erasmus+ Program

What is the Erasmus + Program?

Erasmus+ is a European program in the field of education, training, youth and sport for 2014 to 2020. 

It is a unique program that works to improve the job perspectives and personal development of students as well as help our education systems, training and youth to provide people with skills that today´s labor market and society.

In Spain, there are two organizations assigned as national agencies to organize the Erasmus + program: el Servicio Español para la internacionalización de la Educación (SEPIE), for education and training, and the Agencia Nacional Española (ANE), integrated to the Instituto de la Juventud (INJUVE) for youth. The actions of Erasmus + Sport are organized by the European Commission by its executive agency in the field of Education, Audiovisual and Culture (EACEA) 

What are its objectives?

  • The Erasmus+ program is focused on learning in an international environment to improve the education and motivation of students. 
  • Promote synergies, cooperation and mutual enrichment in learning.
