European Union programmes

Erasmus+ Programme

CIMO is in charge of the administration and implementation of Erasmus+ in Finland. The programme covers the whole spectrum of education, targeting pupils and students; teachers, trainers and other teaching staff; as well as organisations and other bodies involved in education and training.

Erasmus+ comprises four sectors: Comenius for schools, Leonardo da Vinci for vocational education and training, Erasmus for higher education, and Grundtvig for adult education.

As the national agency of the Erasmus+, CIMO gives information on the programme, provides assistance with application, manages the selection of projects, supports and monitors their implementation and gives out information on the results of the programme.

If you are interested in taking part in the Erasmus+, please contact the national agency in your own country.

CIMO is also the national Euroguidance centre in Finland. The Euroguidance network links together the careers guidance systems in Europe.

CIMO is also the national coordinator for the Eurodesk information network in Finland, funded through the Erasmus+ Youth in Action programme.
