Erasmus+ 30 years campaign

This year Erasmus turns 30 – it has accompanied the European project for half of its life.

The European Commission thinks that this deserves being celebrated through a major campaign, which will also promote the European project and its policies.

In particular, as Erasmus grew into Erasmus+, all sectors of education and training (as well as youth and sport) will be concerned and involved in the campaign – among other there will be coordination with the second European Vocational Skills Week.
