About the ERASMUS+ Programme

Erasmus+ is the European Union’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. The programme offers people of all ages the opportunity to gain knowledge and experience at home and abroad. The 2021-2027 Erasmus+ programme places a strong focus on social inclusion, green and digital transitions, and promoting young people’s participation in democratic life. Amongst other priorities, Erasmus+ offers exchange and funding opportunities to students and staff in higher education. In the Netherlands, the Erasmus+ programme is managed by the Dutch Erasmus+ National Agency. At the University of Twente, the Institutional Erasmus+ Coordinator oversees the coordination of the Erasmus+ programme.
