Key Action 2

Key Actions (also referred to as Actions) is the collective name for activities and projects that can be funded under Erasmus+.

Key Action 2: Cooperation for Innovation and Exchange of Good Practices

This Action is all about enabling organisations to work together in order to improve their provision for learners and share innovative practices.

Under Key Action 2 organisations can apply for funding to work in partnership with organisations from other participating countries.

The projects funded under this Key Action will focus on sharing, developing and transferring innovative practices in education, training and youth provision between participating countries.

Key Action 2 covers the five fields of higher education, vocational education and training (VET), schools, adult education and youth. It is important to note that target groups and activities for Key Action 2 vary by field.

Key Action 2 aims to increase the positive impact of European activities at all levels to ensure benefits for the individuals, organisations and countries involved in projects.
