European Projects

Erasmus+ is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport, 2014-2020. It provides funding and support for organisations so that they may operate projects that encourage European exchange, co-operation and learning. Erasmus+ is funded by the European Union through the contributions of member states, including Ireland. Funding of almost €170 million has been allocated to Ireland for the duration of the programme.
