  • Erasmus+ is the EU-funded academic initiative aimed at the development of academic, social, and cultural ties between European universities and their counterparts from eligible countries across the world.

  • This fund is focused primarily on Education, Training, Youth and sports
  • This is open for both state and non-state sector (Private Sector and NGOs)
  • Youth, Green or Environment Protection and Digitalisation are priority areas of Erasmus+
  • As universities of Sri Lanka are eligible for Erasmus+, they can be a part of the academic partnership and alliances with universities from the European Union and other parts of the world receiving funds covering student and teaching staff exchange as well as more wide-scale, institutional developments.
  • As the Erasmus+ initiative brings unique opportunities, it also requires from university specialists a certain level of training on identifying proper priorities and topic areas of projects, selecting academic partners, drafting proposals and reports, etc.
  • This training program is designed with the purpose of developing a certain set of skills required by Sri Lankan Academics and academic administrators for successful work within the Erasmus+ initiative,
  • This is an opportunity to attract a portion of funds available from the EU ( Euro 26.2 Billion) to develop higher education & Training, Youth, and Sports Development in Sri Lanka.
