What is it?
The Erasmus+ Programme Guide (version 2 of 07/01/2016, incorporating the corrigendum of 15/12) is an integral part of the 2016 Erasmus+ Call for Proposals and its corrigendum, published on 22/10/2015.
In addition, due to the recent re-opening, in Greece, of the Erasmus+ actions in the field of youth, the application deadlines for Round 2 under Key Actions 1, 2 and 3 in Greece have been extended exceptionally. More information on the extended deadlines for applicants in Greece can be found in the addendum to the 2016 Programme Guide, of 25/04/16.
