Extraordinary Erasmus+ Call for Proposals 2020

Two extraordinary Erasmus+ calls for proposals were launched on 25 August 2020 to support digital education readiness and creative skills. The calls each provide €100 million to respond to the coronavirus epidemic.


The call for digital education readiness will support projects in school education, vocational education and training, and higher education. This call will aim to enhance online, distance and blended learning - including supporting teachers and trainers, as well as safeguarding the inclusive nature of digital learning opportunities.


The call for ‘partnerships for creativity’ will support projects in the fields of youth, school education and adult education. The call aims to develop skills and competences that encourage creativity and boost quality, innovation and recognition of youth work.
Both calls will help link education, training and youth organisations with those in the cultural and creative sectors.

Israeli (= partner country ) HEIs can participate but not apply and they must demonstrate a significant added value to the primarily programme country based consortium.

The deadline to apply is the 29 October 2020. Interested organisations should contact the Erasmus+ National Agency in their country.

Further information and explanations of the calls are available in the second corrigendum to the 2020 Erasmus+ Programme Guide
