Erasmus+ funds increase for 2019. Investments in young Europeans to help create European Universities in 2019
On 24 October, the European Commission published the call for proposals
for the Erasmus+ programme. The total budget expected for next year is of €3 billion; €30 millions of which are dedicated to the European Universities Initiative.
The European Union leaders endorsed this initiative during the Gothenburg Social Summit last November as part of the plan of establishing a European Education Area by 2025.
Any public or private body active in the fields of education, training, youth and sport may apply for funding under the 2019 call for proposals for the Erasmus+ Programme. Together with the call for proposals, the Commission has also published the Erasmus+ Programme Guide
in all official EU languages, which provides applicants with details on all opportunities for students, staff, trainees, teachers and more available in Erasmus+ for 2019.
This is a great funding opportunity for the education sector at large and for ELIA members.
Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-2027
Once every seven years, the European Union decides on its future long-term budget – the Multiannual Financial Framework
. The next such budget, starting on 1 January 2021, will be the first for the European Union of 27. The proposals for the 2021-2027 Multiannual Financial Framework are the product of an open and inclusive debate.
On 22 October 2018, in Strasbourg, the Committee on Culture and Education heard Milan Zver (EPP) present his draft report on the proposal for a Regulation for the Erasmus programme (2021-2027)
. The programme provides mobility and cooperation opportunities in the fields of education, youth and sport.
At the moment are as well available the proposals for the programmes Creative Europe, DigitalEurope and Horizon Europe framework programme for research and innovation.
