Erasmus + 2014-2020
The Erasmus+, which is the new EU programme for education, training, youth and sport for 2014-2020, started in January 2014. It combines seven programmes from the 2007-2013 period, namely the Lifelong Learning programme, the Youth in action programme and five international cooperation programmes. Tempus Public Foundation is the Hungarian National Agency in the field of education and training.
Erasmus+ will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain work experience and volunteer abroad. In addition to grants for individuals, Erasmus+ will support transnational partnerships to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe. It will also support national efforts to modernise Education, Training and Youth systems. In the field of Sport, there will be support for grassroots projects and cross-border challenges such as combating match-fixing, doping, violence and racism.

Erasmus+ Online Linguistic Support The Online Linguistic Support is a new opportunity for Erasmus+ participants to assess and improve their language skills. It was presented for the first time at the European Day of Languages conference in Florence. The new free linguistic support service for participants in Erasmus+ long-term mobility (at least two months abroad) will be available online as from 1 October, 2014. In 2014, the service will benefit all higher education students going on mobility and young volunteers undertaking European Voluntary Service (EVS). As from 2015, it will be extended to Vocational Education Training (VET) learners.
For now the online linguistic support is available in the following six languages: German Spanish English French Italian Dutch These are the languages of instruction or work for about 90% of all students, trainees, youth volunteers and others that study or train abroad. In the future, the Online Linguistic Support will be extended to all the EU official languages. Participants in Erasmus+ mobility have to assess their language competences before and after their stay abroad. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to take online language courses for free during their stay in the host country to improve their competences.
