Welcome to the website of the Dutch National Agency Erasmus+

Erasmus+ offers a range of opportunities for Dutch organisations to access funding for education, training, youth and sport activities.

Erasmus+ gives people the opportunity to study, train, undertake work experience and volunteer abroad with the aim of boosting skills and employability, particularly amongst young people, in The Netherlands.

Erasmus+ also supports transnational partnerships among Education, Training and Youth institutions and organisations to foster cooperation and bridge the worlds of Education and work in order to tackle the skills gaps we are facing in Europe. It also supports Dutch national efforts to modernise Education, Training and Youth systems.

In the field of sport, Erasmus+ funding supports projects that result in the development, transfer and implementation of innovative ideas and practices in sport at European, national, regional and local level. It also aims to increase cooperation between sporting organisations and tackle issues such as intolerance, discrimination, doping and match-fixing in sport.
