Key Action 1 supports mobility in the education, training and youth sectors and aims to bring long lasting benefits to the participants and the organisations involved. 

The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) manages the selection of projects under:

Large Scale European Voluntary Service Events

Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees

These two actions are included in the General Call for proposals and described in detail in the Erasmus+ Programme Guide.

The other actions of the KA1 are managed at decentralised level by the National Agencies.

Applications under this action cannot be made by individual students, staff or volunteers. People wishing to participate in an activity will need to contact one of the organisations receiving support from the Erasmus + programme.  

Erasmus + provides grants for a wide range of actions and activities in the fields of education, training, youth and sport. The programme gives opportunities to students, trainees, staff and volunteers to spend a period abroad to increase their skills and employability. It supports organisations to work in transnational partnership and to share innovative practices in the fields of education, training and youth. The new Sport action will support grassroots projects and cross-border challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.
