EU Funding in the school sector
The EU Education and Youth Programme Erasmus+ has existed since 1 January 2014. For general education schools interested in a European partnership, learning experience or mobility, two so-called key actions are relevant:
Key Action 1:
Individual learning mobility
This includes in-service training for teachers, school administrators and specialist pedagogical staff in schools and preschool institutions.
Key Action 2:
Working together to support innovation and the exchange good of practices
Until 2013 multilateral projects and strategic and regional partnerships were known as COMENIUS. These opportunities are now grouped together under Strategic Partnerships as Key Action 2 in the school sector.
Erasmus+ for schools in BerlinThe brochure “Organising Erasmus+ Schools in Europe” will provide you with all funding opportunities and instructions on how to apply for Erasmus+ in the school sector:
Applications for Erasmus+ can only be submitted by E-mail. Teachers and pedagogical staff at schools in Berlin should note that a copy of the application must be sent in electronic form to the responsible state office, the representative for EU programmes in the school sector (Sonja Brunner).
EU Funding in the Youth Sector
Young people are more and more interested in an extracurricular European youth exchange. Berlin youth associations can use funding opportunities within the framework of the EU funding programme Erasmus+.
The programme part Youth in Action is aimed at young people between 13 and 30 years of age. The goals are to strengthen citizenship, solidarity and tolerance as well as greater opportunities for young people in the labour market. The young people are expected to acquire important skills for their personal and professional development.
Numerous projects and activities (youth exchanges with participating countries, transnational youth initiatives, European Voluntary Service, mobility activities for youth work specialists, strategic partnerships and projects within the framework of the structured dialogue) are funded in Erasmus+.
The National Agency Youth for Europe is responsible for the implementation of the programme in Germany.
