What is it?

The Erasmus+ Programme Guide (version 2 of 20/01/2017, incorporating the corrigendum of the same date) is an integral part of the 2017 Erasmus+ Call for Proposals.

The document provides information on:

  • the priorities of the programme,
  • the actions supported,
  • the funding available for different actions,
  • detailed information on participation.

Which language versions are available?

The Programme Guide is currently available in the following languages:

bg cs da de et el en es fr it lv

How to apply?

Organisations are invited to submit applications on-line to the National Agency in the relevant country or to the European Education and Culture Executive Agency.

The 2017 on-line application forms and related documents are currently being prepared and will be available on the websites of either the National Agencies or the European Education and Culture Executive Agency, depending on the actions concerned.

Individuals seeking to apply should contact their organisation, institution, or educational establishment.

What are the main changes?

The main changes introduced in 2017 include:

  • The introduction of the concept of “European priorities in the national context” under KA2 Strategic Partnership. For more information on this, please visit the website of each relevant national Agency.
  • The funding rules for some decentralized actions have been fine-tuned,
  • The action "Sector Skills Alliances" is no longer covered by this General Call and Programme Guide and will be dealt with separately through a Specific Call for Proposals announced by the European Education and Culture Executive Agency.

As in 2016, the 2017 Programme Guide places a special focus on encouraging projects supporting social inclusion (notably of refugees and migrants), as well as preventing radicalisation.
