Key Action 1 supports Decentralised Actions, which are run by the National Agencies of Cyprus (The Foundation for the Management of European Lifelong Learning Programmes and Youth Board Cyprus) and Centralised Actions, which are run by the Executive Agency of Education Audiovisual and Culture of the European Commission (EACEA) in Brussels.
Key Action 2 (KA2) aims at the development, transfer and/or application of innovating practices at the level of organisations but also at a local, regional and national level. The aim of this action is to modernise educational and training systems and respond to the challenges faced within these fields.
This Action funds projects of organisations/institutions in the various Programme Countries, which allow their participants to deal with topics of common interest and exchange innovative practices.
It is possible for organisations from Partner Countries to participate in KA2 projects if they give added value to the project.

Key Action 2 supports Decentralised Actions, which are run by the National Agencies of Cyprus (The Foundation for the Management of European Lifelong Learning Programmes and Youth Board Cyprus) and Centralised Actions, which are run by the Executive Agency of Education Audiovisual and Culture of the European Commission (EACEA) in Brussels.
This Key Action covers any type of activity aimed at supporting and facilitating the modernisation of education and training systems.
Under Key Action 3, the Erasmus+ programme will fund strategic activities supporting policy reform across the EU in education, training and youth.
Key Action 3 covers the fields of higher education, vocational education and training, schools, adult education and youth.
It is important to note that the opportunities available vary by field, and in fact the majority of opportunities under this Key Action will be outside of the annual Call for Proposals. They will either be directly implemented by the European Commission or will be the subject of specific Calls for Proposals published throughout the programme duration.
Key Action 3 aims to help Europe achieve the goals set out in European Union strategies such as Europe 2020, Education and Training 20casa20 and the European Youth Strategy.
Aims Capacity-building projects in the field of higher education are transnational cooperation projects, based on multilateral partnerships, primarily between higher education institutions from Programme and eligible Partner Countries. The aim of these projects is to support eligible Partner Countries to:
  • modernise, internationalise and increase access to higher education
  • address the challenges facing their higher education institutions and systems increase cooperation with the EU
  • voluntarily converge with EU development in higher education, and promote people to people contacts, intercultural awareness, and understanding
This is carried out in the context of two key policy documents and the policy defined by four complementary financing instruments;
  • Increasing the Impact of EU Development Policy: An Agenda for Change European Higher Education in the World.
  • the European Neighbourhood Instrument
  • the Development Cooperation Instrument
  • the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance
