Erasmus+ is the result of the integration of the previous EU programmes in the fields of education, training, youth and sport (LLP, youth in action, Erasmus Mundus, Tempus, Alfa, Adulink, and the cooperation programme with industrialized countries). The programme runs from the 1st January 2014 to the 31st December 2020. It gives opportunities to students, trainees and staff to spend a period abroad to increase their skills and employability. It supports organisations to work in transnational partnership and to share innovative practices in the fields of education, training and youth.  Erasmus+ also includes a strong international dimension (i.e. cooperation with Partner Countries) notably in the field of higher education, which opens the programme to institutional cooperation and mobility of young people and staff worldwide.
