Key Action 1

Learning Mobility of Individuals

Key Action 1: Learning Mobility of Individuals is all about providing opportunities for individuals to improve their skills, enhance their employability and gain cultural awareness.

This Key Action is a mix of decentralised projects run by National Agencies and centralised activities managed by the European Commission’s Executive Agency. The Call for Proposals and Erasmus+ Programme Guide have been published detailing all application information for the Erasmus+ programme. For more information on the application process, go to our How to Apply section.

Decentralised Activities

Mobility projects for learners and staff enables beneficiaries to travel to another participating country in order to study, work, teach, train or develop professional skills and competences. Under Erasmus+ mobility activities are project-based and will need to be led by organisations. Individuals are no longer able to apply. This approach is intended to make projects more strategic and impactful.
