(26 January 2017) – The European Commission published today new figures showing that the EU’s education and training programme, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, is more successful and open than ever.
In 2015, Erasmus+ enabled 678,000 Europeans to study, train, work and volunteer abroad, more than ever before.
In the same year, the EU invested €2.1 billion in over 19,600 projects involving 69,000 organisations. These are the main findings of the Erasmus+ Annual Report for 2015.
Results also show that the programme is well on track to meet its target of supporting 4 million people between 2014 and 2020.
