Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps (ESC)

As the national agency for Erasmus+ in Austria the OeAD supports thousands of stays abroad every year. In Erasmus+ Education up to 240,000 participants from Austria in the four education sectors – higher education, school education, vocational education and training and adult education – are expected to spend time abroad for education or training purposes with Erasmus+ during the programme period 2021-2027. This is an average of around 34,300 people per year. In Erasmus+ Youth it is 13,000 people per year, i.e. around 91,000 people will have taken advantage of the exchange opportunities by the end of the programme period. Austria is expected to receive 683 million euros from European Union funds for Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps between 2021 and 2027.

In the central “actions” of Erasmus+ projects are submitted directly to Brussels; there is worldwide competition. The OeAD supports the higher education institutions with an extensive range of advisory services. In the programmes Capacity Building in Higher Education, Jean Monnet, Erasmus Mundus, European Universities and Knowledge Alliances more than 14,600 projects were submitted worldwide between 2014 and 2020. Of the 225 projects submitted by Austria as coordinator 35% were approved, which is a significantly higher percentage than the average (21.9%).

In the “Erasmus back to School” project Erasmus students have visited their former schools for the last 10 years, talked about their experiences and whetted the pupils’ appetites to spend a study period abroad. Since the start of the project more than 600 school visits have taken place and 18,000 pupils have been reached. Now the project has been extended to other areas of education as well.

Within the framework of the global expansion of the Erasmus+ programme 1,660 mobility activities of students and persons employed at higher education institutions between Austria and 65 countries on all continents were funded in 2020. Erasmus+ international supports networking of higher education institutions worldwide and in all disciplines.
