Erasmus+ acts in the fields of education, training, youth and sport, which are considered core areas for the personal and professional development of citizens.
In the budgeting period 2021-2027, Erasmus+ focuses on qualitative impact and actively contributes to more inclusive and cohesive, greener and digitally fit societies. The Program is built both for individuals and organisations, which allows to have a wide and varied catchment area.
The Programme is the main supporter of the objectives of the European Education Area, the Digital Education Action Plan 2021-2027, the European Union Youth Strategy and the European Union Work Plan for Sport (2021-24).
The Covid-19 pandemic brought to the forefront the central role of education to ensure a swift recovery and to promote equal opportunities for all.
The Programme has the following specific objectives:
- promote learning mobility of individuals and groups, as well as cooperation, quality, inclusion and equity, excellence, creativity and innovation at the level of organisations and policies in the field of education and training;
- promote non-formal and informal learning mobility and active participation among young people, as well as cooperation, quality, inclusion, creativity and innovation at the level of organisations and policies in the field of youth;
- promote learning mobility of sport staff, as well as cooperation, quality, inclusion, creativity and innovation at the level of sport organisations and sport policies.
The programme has no direct tourism components. However, tourism enterprises, organisations and destinations can benefit indirectly from the specialized education of young generations and directly by participating to partnership projects such as Key Action 2.
At Twissen we observe the importance of having skilled and informed young resources to be integrated in the Travel and Tourism sector, which, at this juncture as never before, is realizing the strategic importance of the human capital.
