The programme provides students as well as a wide variety of individuals and organizations with opportunities towards evolution and innovation.

Opportunities for Organizations

There are a lot of development and networking activities in which organizations can participate in if they want to take part in Erasmus+.  Some of those actions include strategic improvement of professional skills, organizational capacity building and creating transnational co-operative partnerships.

Those partnerships can be established with organizations from other countries aiming at producing innovative outputs and exchanging best practices.

There are a lot of benefits in including your organization in Erasmus+ plus projects. There is an increase in the capacity of operating on an international level, an improvement of managements methods and access to more funding opportunities and projects to help you build a competitive portfolio.
