The new Erasmus programme will be more inclusive lifting the economic, social and cultural barriers and therefore allowing more people to take part in different learning mobility schemes. Special support for mobility for people with fewer opportunities will be foreseen and include language training, administrative support or e-learning opportunities.
Tripling the budget for the 2021-2027 and partnering with other European programmes will allow more people to participate. The programme will be adapted to the needs of participants, giving financial support for mobility, adjusting monthly grants and a regular review of living and subsistence costs. Money will be relocated also for pre-school and early education staff, young athletes and sport coaches, vocational education exchanges.
