Introduction

Erasmus+ is the new EU Programme in the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period2021-2027.Education, training, youth and sport are key areas that support citizens in their personal and professional development.The general objective of the Programme is to support, through lifelong learning, the educational, professional andpersonaldevelopment of people in education, training, youth and sport, in Europe and beyond, thereby contributing tosustainable growth, quality jobs and social cohesion, to driving innovation, and to strengthening European identity andactive citizenship.

Call objectives

Among others, the call funds the following two types ofPartnershipsfor Cooperation:\

  • Cooperation Partnerships in education and sport: they allow organisations to increase the quality and relevance of their activities, to develop and reinforce their networks of partners, to increase their capacity to operate jointly at transnational level, boosting internationalisation of their activities and through exchanging or developing new practices and methods as well as sharing and confronting ideas. They aim to support the development, transfer and/or implementation of innovative practices as well as the implementation of joint initiatives promoting cooperation, peer learning and exchanges of experience at European level.
  • Smallscale partnerships in education and sport: these actions aim at reaching out to grassroots organisations, less experienced organisations and newcomers to the Programme, reducing entry barriers to the programme for organisations with smaller organisational capacity. This action will also support flexible formats, allowing organisations to have more means to reach out to people with fewer opportunities.

Call options

In 2021, partnerships for cooperation must address one or more of the following programme priority areas:

  • Inclusion and diversity in all fields of education, training, youth and sport;
  • Environment and fight against climate change;

In addition to the general priorities mentioned above, the project must address specific priorities in the respective sectors, which are detailed in the call for proposals.
