Erasmus+, the new EU programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport for 2014-2020, has been just launched in January 2014. This seven year programme will have a budget of €14.7 billion and it will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad.
What’s new for eTwinning in Erasmus+? eTwinning will rise to prominence in the new programme and it will have the opportunity to exchange and strengthen its connections with other mobility activities and EU programmes. eTwinning is included now in Key Action 2 - Cooperation for Innovation and The Exchange of Good Practices, as one of the most important IT support platforms in Europe.
