2017 marks the 30th anniversary or the Erasmus+ programme – a milestone for Europe!
An enduring European success story, Erasmus+ is a cultural phenomenon that has been credited with fostering a pan-European identity. The current programme, running from 2014 to 2020, is set to provide mobility opportunities to over 4 million people. Erasmus+ has also been said to boost employability and job mobility.

In celebration of this momentous occasion, a website (http://ec.europa.eu/erasmus30) has been launched to bring together all key players in Erasmus+.
