Erasmus+ 2020 Call for Proposals launched today!

Today, the European Commission published its 2020 call for proposals for the Erasmus+ programme. 2020 is the last year of the current European Union programme for mobility and cooperation in education, training, youth and sport. The expected budget of over €3 billion, an increase of 12% compared to 2019, will provide even more opportunities for young Europeans to study, train or gain professional experience abroad.

There are no major changes to the four principal components of the international dimension:

  • Capacity Building for Higher Education (CBHE) – application deadline: 5 February 2020 at 17:00
  • International Credit Mobility (ICM) –  5 February 2020 at 12:00
  • Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMDs) – 13 February 2020 at 17:00
  • Jean Monnet Actions (JMA) – 20 February 2020 at 17:00

Available estimated budget for 2020 call is as follows:

  • International Credit Mobility (ICM) – around € 193 million
  • Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degrees (EMJMDs) – around € 177 million for 47 new EMJMDs.
  • Capacity Building for Higher Education (CBHE) – around € 162 million. Some 175 projects.
  • Jean Monnet Actions (JMA) – € 14.6 million


Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme for mobility and transnational cooperation in the areas of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. The current programme as well as its successor, coming into effect in 2021, have a key role in making the European Education Area a reality by 2025. Erasmus+ aims to facilitate access to the programme for participants from all backgrounds, with a particular focus on reaching out to people with social, economic, physical or geographic disadvantages.

In May 2018, the Commission has proposed to double the Erasmus budget to €30 billion for 2021-2027, making it possible for up to 12 million people to have an experience abroad.
