Erasmus+ (2021-2027) is an European funding programme providing grants for a wide range of activities in the fields of education, youth and sports. As of 2019 already 10 million people took part in the Erasmus Programme! Yearly 30.000 students, teachers and youth in the Netherlands take part in the Programme and they go on exchange for study purposes, do an internship, do projects or get trainings abroad in another EU-country.
