[1] The Erasmus+ Programme aims at promoting equity and inclusion by facilitating the access to participants with disadvantaged backgrounds and fewer opportunities compared to their peers whenever disadvantage limits or prevents participation in transnational activities. The European Commission currently considers the following categories in this definition: disability, educational difficulties, economic obstacles, cultural differences, health problems, social obstacles and/or geographic obstacles (in one’s home country).

[2] The Erasmus+ Programme aims at increasing the quality and relevance of qualifications and skills, as well as modernising education, training, and youth work. The Erasmus+ ICM Programme specifically aims to:

  • Increase the attractiveness of higher education in Europe and to support higher education institutions to compete on a global scale;
  • Support the EU priorities identified in the communication “Increasing the Impact of EU Development Policy: an Agenda for Change” and “European Higher Education in the World”;
  • Support the internationalisation, the attractiveness and the modernisation of higher education institutions outside Europe and promote the development of Partner Countries;
  • Promote the development objectives and principles of foreign policy including ownership, social cohesion, equity, geographic balance and diversity.
