How does the Erasmus+ programme help young people to enrich their skills?

As the leading EU programme on supporting education, training, youth, and sports, Erasmus+ is set to last until the year 2020. Erasmus+ , is a programme that can provide students, a variety of other individuals as well as organizations with great opportunities to evolve and take important steps towards innovation. Whether they are part of an Erasmus+ funded project or they are just able to enjoy a project’s outcomes.

The most effective way to gain access to the opportunities that the Erasmus+ programme can provide is to take part in projects. Participants from all around Europe can share amazing experiences while traveling under Erasmus+ funded projects as well as the skills and competencies they were able to acquire during their journey.

The Institute of Entrepreneurship Development, as a leading organization in the field of EU projects, has invested resources in bringing EU projects and young people together. In the period from 2014 to 2019, we gave the opportunity to 80 young men and women from Greece, to travel around Europe under various Erasmus+ funded projects and enhance their skills and competencies.

We give people the opportunity to become important stakeholders in the field of business, entrepreneurship, and startups. We focus on innovation and we try to promote social inclusion, every step of the way! We have organized training sessions for our participants always keeping in mind that the work we do here is to help them take the next step on a professional as well as personal level.
