Europe celebrates 30 years of Erasmus!

These days the celebrations for the 30th anniversary of Erasmus take place in many EU countries.

The Austrian National Agency ÖEAD celebrated this remarkable birthday with all the federal states in the Sofienensäle in Vienna on 9 th May as part of a festive event "From Erasmus to Ersamus+ - 30 years perspectives and horizons". In addition to representatives from all fields of education, youth organizations, culture and sport the following honorable guests, among others, took part in the festivities:
EU Commissioner Dr. Johannes Hahn
Minister of Education Sonja Hammerschid
Federal Minister for Youth and Family Sophie Karmasin.

In discussions with young Erasmus exchange students, the meaning and success of the Erasmus programs were brought to life as well as where you could experience Europe. During this period, more than 9 million travelers were supported by the European Union through these EU mobility programs. 240.000 participants were from Austria. This international experience is also the way to the European education area. Erasmus+ is one of the most efficient funding and mobility program in the European Union, with around € 2 billion a year available.
