Call overview

This call aims to provide structural support, referred to as operating grants, to European non-governmental organisations (ENGOs) and EU-wide networks active in the field education and training.

Call summary

The call embraces the four general priorities of the Von der Leyen Commission as embedded in the Erasmus+ programme namely – inclusion and diversity, - digital transformation, - environment and fight against climate change as well as participation in democratic life.

Specifically, for 2022, priority will also be given to activities linked to the European Year of Youth.

These general objectives draw on the assets of ENGOs and EU-wide networks and on their capacity to reach out to large numbers of interested parties and to advocate EU policy priorities. They should therefore be clearly embedded in the work plans, activities and deliverables of the applicant organisations.
