2018 Call published

The European Commission has published the Erasmus+ 2018 Call.

The Call for Proposals is an overview document with the deadlines for 2018, while the Programme Guide contains detailed information on project rules, funding levels and application processes for Erasmus+ funding.

The 2018 online application forms and related documents are currently being prepared and will be available on the websites of either the National Agencies or the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency, depending on the actions concerned.

The main changes introduced in 2018 include:

  • Additional opportunities for Erasmus+ higher education students to carry out traineeships aimed at gaining digital skills;
  • The ErasmusPro initiative under VET mobility projects to boost long term mobility for VET learners;
  • A new “Schools Exchange Partnerships” format under Strategic Partnerships to help schools better finding their way into cooperation projects;
  • The action “Sector Skills Alliances” has been reintroduced to this Programme Guide;
  • The funding rules for most actions have been fine-tuned

As in 2017, the 2018 Programme Guide places a special focus on encouraging projects supporting social inclusion (notably of refugees and migrants), as well as preventing radicalisation.
