Erasmus programme is a European Union education and training programme which aims to increase the quality of higher education in Europe. For this purpose, the Programme promotes the co-operations between higher education institutions in Europe. The partnerships and mobility activities are financially supported by the Programme.
Besides HEI co-operations, Erasmus programme promotes the cooperation between HEIs and labour market so that universites would meet the need of labour market and graduates would have better employability opportunities.
The European Commission is responsible for the overall implementation of Erasmus Programme. Actions are managed by national agencies in the 33 participating countries or by Executive Agency for Education, Audovisiual and Culture based in Brussels.
