The new program for education and training will last until 2020, and its overall budget is 14,7 billion Euro for the 28 EU member states and 27 non-EU states (including BIH). The program will support transnational partnerships between institutions and organizations in the field of education, training and youth.

The target groups of the Program are students, academic and administrative staff as well as institutions of higher education. Involving many actions, the key action is the support for mobility. The students have the opportunity to study in EU countries from a period of three months to a year, while the staff can teach and attend various trainings at EU universities and institutions for a period of minimum five days to three months. Also, students can attain their first real work experience, with paid internship and volunteer programs along with scholarships and tuition waivers.
