Erasmus+ is an EU Programme that facilitates learning abroad. It covers the fields of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2021-2027. Erasmus+ supports the transnational and international cooperation between the aforementioned organisations and is essential in empowering people with more key competencies, helping to minimise early school leaving and recognising competencies acquired through formal, informal and non-formal learning.
Partnerships for Cooperation can be of different sizes and scope and adapt their activities accordingly. The qualitative assessment of these projects is proportional to the objectives of the cooperation as well as the nature of the organisations involved.
Cooperation Partnerships allow organisations to do the following:
Increase the quality and relevance of their activities.
Develop and reinforce their networks of partners.
Increase their capacity to operate jointly at transnational level.
Boost internationalisation of their activities through exchanging or developing new practices and methods.
Share and challenge ideas.
The aim of Cooperation Partnerships are as follows:
To increase quality in the work, activities and practices of organisations and institutions involved.
To open up to new actors (not naturally included within one sector).
To build the capacity of organisations to work transnationally and across sectors.
To address common needs and priorities in the fields of education, training, youth and sport.
To enable transformation and change (at individual, organisational or sectoral level), leading to improvements and novel approaches in proportion to the context of each organisation.
These types of Erasmus+ partnerships aim to support the development, transfer and/or implementation of innovative practices as well as the implementation of joint initiatives promoting cooperation, peer learning and exchanges of experience at European level. Results should be re-usable, transferable, up-scalable and if possible, have a strong transdisciplinary dimension.
