Erasmus+ Brexit Update
 
 
The National Authority for the Erasmus+ and European Solidarity corps is constantly monitoring events regarding the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union (Brexit). It is to be noted that whatever the outcome of the ongoing negotiations between the European Union and the United Kingdom, brexit is expected to lead to many changes for Erasmus+. Notwithstanding that the outcome of the negotiations is not yet known, the NAU is recommending all those who may be effected by this event, or have any queries to:
 
       Visit the National Authority’s (EUPA) website’s dedicated page on the matter. The EUPA can also be contacted telephonically on (+356) 2558 6130, via e-mail (eupa@gov.mt) or at their offices. Further details about the EUPA are available on their website.
       The Government has also launched its own factsheet website with its plans in case of a no-deal brexit.
       Contact the Government’s brexit hotline via the servizz.gov freephone 153.

2019 Call for Proposals:

On October 24th 2018, The European Commission published the 2019 Erasmus+ budget, with an expected line of €3,000,000,000.
 
Any public or private body active in the fields of education, training, youth and sport may apply for funding under the 2019 call for proposals for the Erasmus+ Programme. In addition, groups of young people who are active in youth work, but who do not form a youth organisation, may apply for funding.
 
Together with the call for proposals, today the Commission also published the Erasmus+ Programme Guide in all official EU languages, which provides applicants with details on all opportunities for students, staff, trainees, teachers and more available in Erasmus+ for 2019.
As endorsed by the Gothenberg Social summit in November 2017, €30 million has been set aside for dedicated European Universities, with the aim of pushing the establishment of a European Education Area by 2025 to ensure that “learning, studying and carrying out research are not blocked by borders”.
