Educational project for coordinators and grant writers of Erasmus + and the European Solidarity Corps projects
We help non-formal education enthusiasts to:
Create bright ideas

Receive European funding

Manage projects effectively

This European Union program aims to support projects in the fields of education, vocational training, youth and sports.
In 2021 - 2027 the budget for Erasmus + projects is 26 billion Euro, and the program itself is becoming even more inclusive and international.

The topics of digital transformation and sustainable development, equality and inclusion, active participation and stable employment, mental and physical health are becoming priorities.

What does this mean? Now is the perfect time to explore the world of Erasmus +. And for those who are actively using the capabilities of the program already - to develop skills and reach new levels.
