The document provides information on:

  • the priorities of the programme,

  • detailed information on participation.

Which language versions are available?

The Programme Guide is currently available in the following languages:

In the case of conflicting meanings between language versions, the English version prevails.

How to apply?

Organisations are invited to submit applications online to the National Agency in the relevant country, via the Erasmus+ forms website, or to the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.

The 2019 online application forms and related documents are currently being prepared. Depending on the actions concerned, these will be made available on the websites of either the National Agencies or the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency.

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

What are the main changes?

The main changes introduced in 2019 include:

  • "European Universities", a new action supporting experimental models to increase the performance, attractiveness and competitiveness of higher education institutions on a European scale;
  • A specific Lot under Sector Skills Alliances supporting the development of sectoral approaches through platforms of vocational excellence;
  • A reinforced focus on the "Schools Exchange Partnerships" format under Strategic Partnerships, in particular encouraging schools to combine their projects with their cooperation in eTwinning.

As in previous years, the 2019 Programme Guide places a special focus on encouraging projects that support social inclusion (notably of refugees and migrants), as well as those that focus on preventing radicalisation.
