On November 28, 2023, the European Commission launched the 2024 call for proposals under Erasmus+, the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. With a budget of €4.3 billion for next year, Erasmus+ will continue to support transnational experiences of school pupils, students in higher education and vocational education and training. The programme also offers opportunities to adult learners, educators and staff, and young people in non-formal learning programmes.

The programme will offer stronger incentives for sustainable travel. It will be presented as of 2024 as the default option, with participants from remote areas, islands or places with insufficient rail networks getting adequate compensation for using those sustainable modes of travel. For the first time, travel contributions will also be offered for intra-European higher education mobility. This will ensure more uniform funding rules across all sectors.

Cooperation activities under Erasmus+ will continue to bring people and organisations together to work on the programme's four overarching key priorities: inclusion, active citizenship and democratic participation, green and digital transitions.

Erasmus+ will also continue its key role in promoting common EU values. All programme beneficiaries and the activities they implement will comply and promote the values of human dignity and rights, freedom, democracy, equality, and the rule of law.

Under this Erasmus+ call for project applications, any public or private body active in the fields of education, training, youth and sport can apply for funding either via Erasmus+ National Agencies (in all EU Member States and countries associated to the programme) or the European Education and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA).

As a preparation for this call, the National Erasmus+ Office in Lebanon has already launched an information campaign with at least 4 targeted information sessions and collected many proposals worked out by different Lebanese stakeholders. This campaign will continue until the expiry of all the deadlines as set in the call for proposals with the possibility of having, by all means, bilateral discussions with project designers to further develop their respective ideas.
