The European Union's Erasmus+ programme is a funding programme to support activities in the fields of Education, Training, Youth and Sport.
The European Commission is responsible for Erasmus+ policies and oversees the overall programme implementation.
The programme is made up of three so-called "Key Actions" and two additional actions, of which one is Sport, that are managed partly at the national level by National Agencies and partly at the European level by the Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) sometimes referred to simply as “the Executive Agency”.
For the seven years 2014-2020 Erasmus+ has an overall indicative financial envelope of 14.774 billion EUR under Heading 1 and of 1.680 billion EUR under Heading 4 of the EU Budget. The annual budget, including the allocation for actions under the Sport chapter is adopted by the Budgetary Authority.
Actions in the field of Sport will support:
Collaborative Partnerships for projects aimed at a variety of topics including integrity, good governance, participation in sport and physical activity, volunteering in sport, employment in sport and the dual careers of athletes.
Small Collaborative Partnerships for projects aimed at encouraging social inclusion and equal opportunities in sport, promoting European traditional sports and games, supporting the mobility of volunteers, coaches, managers and staff of non-profit sport organisations and protecting athletes, especially the youngest, from health and safety hazards by improving training and competition conditions.
Not-for-profit European sport events, granting individual organisations in charge of the preparation, organisation and follow-up to a given event. The activities involved will include the organisation of training activities for athletes and volunteers in the run-up to the event, opening and closing ceremonies, competitions, side-activities to the sporting event (conferences, seminars), as well as the implementation of legacy activities, such as evaluations or follow-up activities;
Strengthening of the evidence base for policy making through studies; data gathering, surveys; networks; conferences and seminars.
Dialogue with relevant European stakeholders, being mainly the annual EU Sport Forum and support to Sport Presidency events organised by the EU Member States holding the Presidency of the EU. Other ad hoc meetings and seminars relevant to ensure optimal dialogue with the sport stakeholders may also be organised as appropriate.
