The new EU program for education, training, youth and sport is called ERASMUS+ and runs from 2014 to 2020. ERASMUS+ integrates the existing EU programs for lifelong learning, training, youth and sport into a new program.
The program contains three key actions:
Key Action 1 – Learning mobility for individuals
Key Action 2 – Fostering innovation and exchanging practices through cooperation
As the Design Department of the Fresnius University of Applied Sciences, the AMD Academy for Fashion & Design has been awarded the ERASMUS+ – Charta for Key Action 1, for the entire duration of the ERASMUS+ program. The current Erasmus education declaration can be found here.
Having been awarded the Erasmus Charter, valid until 2020, AMD is entitled to apply for and implement ERASMUS+ measures.
