Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain experience, and volunteer abroad. Set to last until 2020, Erasmus+ doesn’t just have opportunities for students. Merging seven prior programmes, it has opportunities for a wide variety of individuals and organisations.
Collaborations between University of Saint Joseph (USJ) and Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI) under Erasmus+ have been taking place for several years in the fields of architecture, sustainability of the built environment, and heritage management.
