LLP is an integrated programme supporting education and training systems on a European level. It offers funding for projects which aim to stimulate transnational mobility of individuals, promote bilateral and multilateral partnerships, or enhance the improvement of the quality in education and training systems through multilateral projects encouraging innovation.
There are four sub-programmes which fund projects at different levels of education and training:
- Comenius for schools
- Erasmus for higher education
- Leonardo da Vinci for vocational education and training
- Grundtvig for adult education
In addition the programme incorporates a 'transversal programme' as well, supporting cross-cutting activities, and the Jean Monet programme for the European integration in education and training.
This LLP programme is running from 2007-2013 and there is currently a consultation about the future education and training programmes: see the link below.
In addition to the member states (EU 27) the following countries are eligible for funding: EEA countries, Switzerland and Turkey. The Jean Monnet Programme also allows participation of institutes of higher education in third countries who run programmes dealing with European integration.
