Sport + adult education = health and inclusion

When sport and adult education are combined, great results can be achieved. Erasmus+ projects are studying and testing this combination with refugees, prisoners, mentally handicapped people and senior citizens.

Celebrating the power of sport

Sport is fun, exciting and brings people together. It is based on fairness and respect - playing a vital role not only in individual health and fitness, but in shaping our wider European society. Erasmus+ sport supports young athletes and promotes social inclusion - and there are new funding opportunities lining up!

Sport: a small but very active part of Erasmus+

Sport might not be the best-known part of the Erasmus+ programme, but it is a very dynamic one. Since 2014, almost 400 grants have been awarded in priority areas for Erasmus+ Sport. The programme supports various activities such as collaborative partnerships - including on a small scale since 2016 - and European not-for-profit sport events.
