Erasmus+ Call for Proposals and Programme Guide for 2017 Now Available

European CommissionThe call for proposals and programme guide for the Erasmus+ 2017 period have been published. The call is aimed at any public or private organisation that operates in the fields of education, training, youth and sport. Several changes are made in the 2017 call as compared to the previous call for proposals. First, a concept of “European priorities in the national context” has been included under KA2 – Strategic Partnership. Second, the “Sector Skills Alliances” action is now separate: a specific call for proposals will be announced for it by the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency. Finally, several funding rules concerning some decentralised actions have been amended. As in 2016, also the new Programme Guide especially encourages projects that support social inclusion, chiefly refugees and migrants, as well as projects that prevent radicalisation. The criteria, precise fields of action and deadlines for submission of applications can be found here. The programme guide and other relevant resources can be found here.
