The deadline for Erasmus+ funding applications has been changed.
A revised version of the 2015 Programme Guide was published last week, with changes to the guide published on 16 October 2014.
The following changes to the previous programme guide have been announced:
- the deadline for Strategic Partnerships in the fields of Education and Training (Key Action Two) are brought forward from 30 April 2015 to 31 March 2015
- the conditions under which Russian institutions are allowed to participate in the capacity building action in higher education (Key Action Two) are detailed in line with the European Council conclusions regarding bilateral cooperation with Russia
- the conditions of participation for Partner Country organisations under Collaborative Partnerships in the field of Sport are the same as those defined in the 2014 Programme Guide.
Professionals in the field of education and training have the opportunity to travel to another European country for professional development under the Erasmus+ programme.
Up to 1 536 million euros will be available for projects in the field of education and training.
Under Key Action One, organisations that specialise in the field of education and training can apply for the mobility members of staff to other European countries. The deadline for this key action is 4 March 2015.
Adult education organisations can also apply under Key Action Two, and form strategic partnerships with colleagues in Europe to share information about best practices.
Organisations are invited to submit online applications to the National Agency in the relevant country or to the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) in Brussels.
Individuals who are interested in applying should contact their organisation, institution, or educational establishment.
