Erasmus+ Funding

Education, training and non-formal youth learning are essential to creating jobs and improving Europe's competitiveness. Over the next seven years, Erasmus+ will provide €14.7 billion to strengthen education, training, youth and sport in Europe, allowing more than 4 million young people to gain experience and skills by studying, training or volunteering abroad. The programme will also support over 125,000 institutions and organisations to work with peers in other countries to innovate and modernise teaching practice and youth work. Together they will help ensure that young people and adults get the skills they need to succeed in today's world. Click here for more information about Erasmus+.

European Solidarity Corps

The European Solidarity Corps is a new volunteering opportunity which is currently being fine-tuned by the European Commission. This opportunity enables young people to show solidarity with communities in their respective country as well as abroad.

It adds value to the current Erasmus+ Volunteering programme previously known as EVS, as well as other EU funding programmes. It is planned that Erasmus+ national agencies will manage the European Solidarity Corps in each country.

The European Commission has just published the first call for proposals under the new legal basis of the European Solidarity Corps. Eligible organisations and groups of young people should submit their application for the below solidarity activities by 16th October 2018 at 12:00hrs (midday Brussels time):

i. Solidarity Projects

ii. Volunteering Projects

iii. Traineeships and Jobs,


Application forms can be found here

For further information, applicants may refer to the European Solidarity Corps Guide and Webpage

Organisations which hold a valid Quality Label (accreditation) will have access to the European Solidarity Corps PASS Portal, where they can find potential participants for their projects. Applications for obtaining the Quality Label can be found here. These applications can be submitted on a continuous basis.

The Erasmus+ accreditation process shall be discontinued with immediate effect for all organisations except for those from the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Turkey. Organisations established in those countries will still be able to submit an application for Erasmus+ accreditation to their National Agency. Organisations established in a partner country neighbouring the EU must apply for a Quality Label at a relevant SALTO Centre. Organisations which have a valid accreditation under the Erasmus+ Programme are still eligible to apply under the European Solidarity Corps.

Young people between 18-30 years interested in participating under the European Solidarity Corps framework must be registered in the European Solidarity Corps PASS Portal.

The following official documents regarding the first call for proposals with regards to the European Solidarity Corps are also available:
