Students and teachers, young people and volunteers, artists, writers and performers, media professionals and citizens active in local communities. What do they have in common? They all want to hone their skills, create and share knowledge and ideas, preserve and protect our cultural heritage, and enrich Europe's cultural diversity.

This is where EACEA can make a difference. Since 2006, the European Education and Culture Executive Agency has been a catalyst for projects in education, training, youth, sport, audiovisual, culture, citizenship and humanitarian aid. On behalf of the European Commission, EACEA strives to foster innovation in these areas, always in a spirit of cross-border cooperation and mutual respec

These programmes will build on the success of their predecessors (Erasmus+, Creative Europe, the European Solidarity Corps and Europe for Citizens).

Programmes overview

  • Erasmus+ Programme
    Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. It offered a life changing experience to more than 10 million participants over the last 30 years, and will continue offering opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations for the next seven-year lifecycle (2021-2027).
    In the period 2021-2027 Erasmus+ will continue building on its successful and broad experience focusing on three horizontal priorities: inclusion and diversity, digital transformation, environmental sustainability
  • Creative Europe
    Creative Europe is the European Commission's programme for providing support to the culture and audiovisual sectors.
    Following on from the previous Creative Europe programme, Creative Europe will keep supporting the European cultural and creative sectors for the period 2021-2027. The Programme builds on and continues the structure of the previous programme with three strands – “CULTURE”, which covers cultural and creative sectors with the exception of the audiovisual sector; “MEDIA”, which covers the audiovisual sector; and the “CROSS-SECTORAL strand”, which covers activities across all cultural and creative sectors.
  • European Solidarity Corps
    The European Solidarity Corps aims to foster solidarity in European society, engaging young people and organisations in accessible and high-quality activities.
    With a dedicated budget of €1.009 billion for 2021-2027, it offers 270 000 opportunities to young people to help address societal and humanitarian challenges through volunteering or by setting up their own solidarity projects.
  • Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values programme
    This programme aims to protect and promote Union rights and values as enshrined in the EU Treaties and the Charter of Fundamental Rights. It will contribute to sustain and further develop open, rights-based, democratic, equal and inclusive societies based on the rule of law.
