Funding programme

Erasmus+ is the EU funding programme for education, training, youth and sport for the period 2021-2027. Read more about ERASMUS+ here.

Call overview

This action supports organisations and informal groups of young people to carry out projects allowing young people with fewer opportunities to participate in DiscoverEU on equal footing with their peers.

Call details

DiscoverEU offers young people who are 18 years’ old a chance to have a short-term individual or group experience travelling across Europe by rail or other modes of transport where necessary. The objectives are to:

  • give young people the chance to learn about Europe but also to discover Europe’s opportunities for their future education and life choices;
  • equip young people with knowledge, life skills and competences of value to them;
  • encourage connection and intercultural dialogue between the young people;
  • foster the young people’s sense of belonging to the European Union;
  • inspire young people to embrace sustainable travel in particular and environmental conscience in general.

Objectives

DiscoverEU seeks to enhance its inclusion dimension by providing extra support to participants with fewer opportunities to explore Europe.

More specifically, the DiscoverEU Inclusion Action aims to:

  • Reach out to young people with fewer opportunities that would not apply on their own initiative;
  • Overcome the obstacles that prevent these young people to directly participate in the DiscoverEU general application round and provide the necessary support that they need so that they are able to travel;
  • Trigger and enhance the development of competences and skills of young people with fewer opportunities taking part in DiscoverEU.

Activities

With the DiscoverEU Inclusion Action, one to five young people with fewer opportunities from the same country gather for a short period to travel through Europe. The learning period comprises planning, preparation, implementation before and during the DiscoverEU travel as well as follow-up after the travel.

The following activities are not eligible for grants under DiscoverEU: academic study trips; exchange activities that aim to make financial profit; exchange activities that can be considered as performance tours, statutory meetings, training courses by adults for young people.
